Read more about the opera Merry Wives of Windsor

Nicolai's charming comedy has never really established itself in Britain, perhaps due to competition from Verdi's Falstaff. This was recognized as the first revival for many years - in Scotland, at any rate, the first since 1894.

Complete cast for 22 Feb taken from programme in the collection of the NLS. In addition a very brief review in the Scotsman of the Glasgow performance identifies six of the principals.
