No money. No morals. No problem.

Falstaff's life of sport and pleasure comes crashing down when his appetites lead to an ill-advised seduction scheme. Director Robert Carsen lovingly evokes 1950s England in this hilarious production, which recently delighted audiences at Covent Garden, La Scala and the Met.
