The Royal Opera House announced on 28 September 2020 that it will give two concert performances of Verdi’s opera Falstaff on 27 and 29 November, with Bryn Terfel in the title role and Simon singing the role of Ford. The Royal Opera will open these performances to a live audience and there will also be an online stream to watch at home (a fee will be payable).
Update from the Royal Opera House website:
“Due to the lockdown announced for England, it is with sadness that we must cancel all scheduled performances of Falstaff and Ariodante for live audiences. Due to the smaller artistic forces required, we are pleased to be able to perform Ariodante as a live-stream concert.”
The livestream of Falstaff was also cancelled.
