The Bayerische Staatsoper will premiere Mateja Koležnik’s new production of Verdi’s Falstaff live on December 2 at 7pm CET, free of charge on STAATSOPER.TV. Ms. Pérez returns to the Bayerische Staatsoper to star as Alice Ford, a role which she was previously praised by the New York Classical Review for her “easy, bell-like sound to her voice and the feeling that she was relishing the part.” Performances will take place on December 2, 5, & 12.

Mateja Koležnik’s staging of Verdi’s opera is inspired by Italian films by director Paolo Sorrentino. Ms. Pérez shares the stage with a fantastic roster of artists, including Wolfgang Koch as the seedy nobleman Sir John Falstaff, Boris Pinkhasovich as Ford, and Judit Kutasi as Mrs. Quickly. Michele Mariotti conducts the Orchestra and Chorus of the Bayerische Staatsoper. For more information about the live broadcast, please visit STAATSOPER.TV.
