The Metropolitan Opera presents Verdi’s Falstaff at the Rialto this Saturday at 10 a.m.

This new Met production is imported from the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden.

Comic bass Ambrogo Maestri, who opened the Met last year as Dr. Dulcamara in L’Elisir d’Amore, sings the title role of the brilliant and blustery Sir John Falstaff, opposite a marvellous ensemble that includes Angela Meade, Stephanie Blythe, Lisette Oropesa, and Franco Vassallo.

Come out for the warmth, mirth and music. Tickets are on sale now at the Rialto. For more information, call 250-338-5502.
