Verdi’s 
Otello

Approximate runtime: 3:27
 
Verdi’s Shakespearean masterpiece is back at the Met, starring a “chilling and touching” Johan Botha (Huffington Post) in the title role. Renée Fleming as Desdemona is “sublime” and “knows exactly how to spin the gentle lines of the ‘Willow Song’ and ‘Ave Maria’ so that they softly fill the hall” (New York Times). Falk Struckmann is “excellent throughout as Iago…blessed with a luxuriant baritone that commands attention” (Huffington Post). Semyon Bychkov conducts.

Why We Love Falstaff?!

_IGP9849


The Idaho Statesman and The Boise Weekly are both talking about Falstaff...a must-see opera!

This production features an all-star cast including Peter Castaldi in his Opera Idaho debut as Falstaff, and local singers Jason Detwiler as Ford, Leslie Mauldin as Alice, and Tiffany Calás as Meg. Ben Bunsold returns to Idaho as Fenton, while Elizabeth Ashantiva makes her debut in a professional role as Nannetta. Conductor Steve Crawford & Director David Cox will be returning to Boise and for the first time team up for this classical comedy.

If you haven't bought your tickets for Falstaff, don't worry, there is still time.  In fact, you can even buy them at the door.
