The Merry Wives of Windsor

Venue: Arcola Theatre, 24 Ashwin Street, London E8 3DL

Queer Voices are Norway’s first and only Queer opera company by, with and for the LGBTQIA+ community.

And in July lucky London gets to see their first full-length opera production – The Merry Wives of Windsor by Otto Nicolai, based on Shakespeare’s classic play.

Promising to be a burlesque, exuberant comic-opera with fearless casting, the production crosses the boundaries between audience and performers, and is true guerilla opera! – abolishing archaic, operatic hierarchy, experimenting and challenging traditional gender roles in the play.

The production is directed by Kristin Lundemo Overøye and Lars Harald Maagerø. Queer Voices was founded in 2019 by Maria Dale Johannessen, Therese-Angelle Khachik and Eldrid Gorset.

Sung in Norwegian – spoken text in English, with subtitles in English on the wall
