"This is the short and the long of it."
- Mistress Quickly, "The Merry Wives of Windsor," II.ii
The short of it is that Resonance Works closes its fourth full season next week with Verdi's Falstaff, a performance featuring comedy, star-crossed lovers, disguises, seduction, and brilliant music!
The long of it is Res Works has assembled a brilliant cast and crew from Pittsburgh and across the country to present this witty and raucous opera. Conspire with the Merry Wives as they plot to teach Sir John a lesson! Be swept off your feet with the love story between Nannetta and Fenton! Laugh with and at Sir John's trials and tribulations as he learns that "All the world is a prank/Man is born a joker/But the best laugh is that/Which is laughed last."
Join us on Mother's Day weekend for "Every mortal/Laughs at every other," and we wouldn't want you to miss a single laugh...or note! Get your tickets now and save $5!
Falstaff preview today, May 4, on WQED-FM!
