One larger-than-life character dominates the stage in Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor and in a very well-known opera by Verdi. Almost 100 years before, Salieri wrote his version of this comedy with its finale of shenanigans in Windsor Forest when the merry wives are the victors over a jealous husband and the would-be seducer, Falstaff. Salieri’s Falstaff opens the 2022 year of Wednesday night operas.
