Otto Nicolai’s Die Lustigen Weiber von Windsor (1848) maintains the breezy, rather shallow comedy inherent to Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor. This delightful traditional German singspiel is worthy of its composer who was head of opera in Berlin and founder and conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. Unlike Verdi’s later opera which reveals Falstaff’s moral angst, Nicolai focuses on the romance between Fenton and Anne.
The opera suits and challenges young professional singers and allows The School to extend the operatic offerings available to its Australian audience.
“All’s well that ends well.”
