Old, large and lecherous, Sir John Falstaff can’t resist the ladies. But they can resist him, and three of them plot to put an end to his advances once and for all. Bryn Terfel plays the title role in this performance, which also features Ana Maria Martinez (Alice Ford), Simon Keenlyside (Ford), AnnaProhaska (Nannetta), Frédérid Antoun (Fenton), Marie-Nicole Lemieux (Dame Quickly), Marie McLaughlin (Meg Page). Nicola Luisotti conducts.
