Falstaff e le allegre comari di Windsor

Falstaff - Globe

Conquered by the character of Falstaff seen in Henry IV and V, according to legend, Queen Elizabeth ordered the writing of a new comedy that saw him as the absolute protagonist.

In fourteen days, Shakespeare wrote The Merry Wives of Windsor. In the play, the famous playwright inserted the best of his repertoire: the contrasted love between young people, misunderstandings, exchanges, disguises, and mockery.

The play is led by "free" rather than "cheerful" women because they are free to think and act.

The character of Sir John Falstaff, the most beloved of the Shakespearean comedy production, has entered the hearts of all-time viewers. As good as Hamlet.

In this new version of the text, we find additional fragments from Henry IV and Henry V that enrich the character of Falstaff and tell his origin, as well as the opening monologue of Henry IV.

The brainchild of Gigi Proietti, in collaboration with the Foundation created in memory of Silvano Toti, patron and entrepreneur, the Globe Theatre was inaugurated in 2003. That same year was the 100th anniversary of Villa Borghese, the beautiful city park that houses it.
It presents Elizabethan tragedies and comedies in a space that, thanks to its particular architectural features and the essentiality of its scenes, allows for a cathartic relationship with the works of English Renaissance theatre.
Built on the model of a London playhouse, with a characteristic circular floor plan, it is the only Elizabethan theater in Italy. It has 1206 seats distributed in an auditorium of standing room for 415 spectators and three balcony tiers, facing concentrically on the stage, reached by connecting walkways. The first order, also accessible from the stalls, consists of five sectors with 302 seats; the second one has a capacity of 374 spectators; the third one of 115 spectators.
