“Keel Watson was born to play Falstaff” London Evening Standard

“The performance was stunning from start to finish… the production had a power which held the audience spellbound.” Cambridge Evening News on The Adventures of Pinocchio (2015)

To mark the end of this year’s Shakespeare 400 celebrations, the Cambridge Philharmonic proudly presents a semi-staged concert performance of one of the greatest comic operas ever written.

“Tutto nel mondo è burla!” says Sir John Falstaff: ‘all the world’s a joke!’

Award-winning young director Daisy Evans and an all-star cast, led by Keel Watson in the title role, will bring Verdi’s final opera to the West Road stage. Following critically-acclaimed, sold-out productions of The Adventures of Pinocchio, Carmen and Peter Grimes, this performance of Falstaff promises to be a highlight of the season.
