In light of concerns regarding COVID-19 and in accordance with the university's recommendations to limit in-person gatherings, we are regretfully canceling PSU Opera's spring production of The Merry Wives of Windsor. The health and safety of our community is important to us, and we appreciate your understanding and support. 

This brilliant comedy combines the wit of Shakespeare and the charm of Viennese operetta. The story is set in Windsor, England, in the early 15th century. Sir John Falstaff, the middle-aged knight, tries to court the married Mistress Ford and Mistress Page for his financial advantage. The ladies decide to teach old John a lesson, and he is the victim of a series of pranks, first by them, and then by the whole town, until he swears never again to indulge in amorous pursuits. The bon vivant Falstaff will be performed by opera star, Richard Zeller!
