The 2022-23 season of Metropolitan Opera broadcasts continues with Verdi’s exuberant Shakespearean comedy Falstaff. Baritone Michael Volle stars in the prodigious title role as the lovable rogue, Sir John Falstaff. Sopranos Ailyn Pérez and Jennifer Johnson Cano, and contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux join forces as the merry wives of Windsor who gleefully torment Sir John.
