As a golf club near Windsor, ‘Big John’ Falstaff props up the bar at the nineteenth hole, which is where he is invariably to be found. He doesn’t actually play golf, because no one wants to play with him – and anyway, he’s probably too plump to make it past the first green.

Verdi’s glorious comedy is brought to life with wonderful performances and Tony Britten’s trademark wit.
