Verdi's comic romp was brought to the Glyndebourne stage by director Richard Jones and designer Ultz in 2009. The opera is based on Shakespeare's 'The Merry Wives of Windsor' and in this production the setting is ration era Windsor complete with American GI's, rows of perfect cabbages and a formidable 'Brown owl' Mistress Quickly.
