Sir John Falstaff in the Bronx

For its 50th birthday season, Bronx Opera - I did not know there was a Bronx opera - will perform RVW's Sir John in Love and Verdi's Falstaff. I wish they had the resources to throw in Nicolai's Merry Wives of Windsor, but you can't have everything.

I also wish I could get to Sir John in Love, an extreme rarity in the US!
