But there are t imes w h e n those c o u r s e s spec tacu la r l y converge . The Merry Wives of Windsor s i ts at one of those intersect ions, and it is a great p leasure to be able to explore all the ways that this union c a n create exci t ing and moving Theat re . T h e Depar tment of Theat re , F i lm and Crea t i ve Wri t ing must cont inual ly a d d r e s s Marsha l l M c L u h a n ' s famous mantra "The M e d i u m is the M e s s a g e " . To ach ieve meaningfu l c o m m u n i c a -t ion, the manne r in which a story is told may be more important than the story itself. T h e t ransference of any story from one per formance med ium to another a lso involves a translat ion, and in the p rocess , s o m e e lements will be e m p h a s i z e d , and others supp ressed , maybe even abandoned altogether. S o , in the realm of human commun ica t ion , it is more than a matter of pass ing interest to c o m p a r e the way in wh ich the story of S i r J o h n is c h a n g e d by the addit ion of a mus ica l sco re . O n e of the great advan tages of operat ing a Theat re P rog ram in the d iverse env i ronment of U B C is the possibi l i ty of interraction with o ther Ar t is ts a n d S c h o l a r s , a n d input f rom c o l l e a g u e s a round the university is a vital factor in our presentat ions. T h e body of knowledge that sur rounds The Merry Wives of Windsor as a play c a n be a d d e d to the knowledge of The Merry Wives of Windsor as an ope ra . Ou r s tudents, whether they be s ingers , actors, techn ic ians , mus ico log is ts or dramaturgs, will all benefit f rom exposu re to the sort of joint presentat ion The Merry Wives of Windsor represents . W e trust that they will take forward an i nc reased unders tand ing of both the work itself and of the c o m -plexit ies of the Art of the Theat re .

It is no wonder that the Eu ropean aud i -e n c e s not only marve led at the voca l and dramat ic talent of the s ing -ers, but a lso del ighted in the multi-cultural nature of our E n s e m b l e . W e were told on severa l o c c a s i o n s that we were indeed C a n a d a ' s best a m b a s s a d o r s . Ou r language w a s universal - mus ic . Ou r example -literal and symbo l i c harmony.

MEDIA AND PROMOTIONAL SUPPORT Plot Synopsis Setting: Windsor in the early 17th century ACT 1.i Between the houses of Ford and Page Mrs Ford is read ing a love letter f rom Falstaff; M rs P a g e joins her and they real-ize that he has sent them identical letters. The i r react ion to the effrontery of the fat old knight, and their p lans to take revenge on him are revealed in their duet. In the fol lowing dialogue Page tells Ford, S lender and Dr Ca jus that he hopes to w e d his daughter, A n n e , to S lender , though Dr C a j u s and Fenton both want to marry her. In the recitative and duet Fenton urges his suit in va in ; his ardent me lod ic l ine is effectively contrasted with Page ' s busy semiquaver patterns a s he gloats over S lender ' s wea l th . 1.ii Inside Ford's house M rs Ford cons ide rs what s h e will say to Falstaff w h e n he visi ts her; the f ine recitative and ar ia skilfully develops her character as a quick-witted, resourceful and charm ing w o m a n . Mrs P a g e enters and in d ia logue they d i s c u s s their p lan to m a k e Falstaff h ide in a wash ing basket and then have him thrown in the river. M rs P a g e c o n c e a l s herself and a s the f inale beg ins Falstaff arr ives. H is por t l iness contrasts amus ing ly with the tr ipping f igures that Nico la i g ives him to s ing a s he beg ins his court ing of Mrs Ford . Mrs P a g e bursts in a s p lanned with the news that Ford is com ing , and the two w o m e n get Falstaff into the basket . Ford , a c c o m p a n i e d by his ne ighbours , enters in a fury and s e a r c h e s the house (he has been informed, anonymous ly , by his own wife of Falstaf f 's ass igna t ion with her). Meanwh i le , the wash ing basket is removed by two servants , and Mrs Ford and Mrs P a g e laugh together, in a delightful duet, at the l e s s o n s they are teach ing the m e n . W h e n Ford returns from the s e a r c h , his wife roundly sco l ds him for his unworthy susp i c i ons ; as the curtain falls, s h e s imula tes a fainting spe l l . cont inued on next page. . . Page 12 ACT2.i The Garter Inn In a d ia logue s c e n e Falstaff is goss ip ing with his c ron ies ; he has been invited to a further meet ing with Mrs Ford . H e and his f r iends s ing a tuneful dr inking s o n g . In another short sec t ion of d ia logue the waiter tel ls Falstaff that a cer ta in Si r Brook, actual ly Ford in d isgu ise , is wait ing to s p e a k to h im. T h e fol lowing recitative and com ic duet in which Ford tries to d iscover the truth about Falstaff 's relat ionship with Mrs Ford , amus ing ly depic ts the increasingly fur ious Ford 's s t ruggles to mainta in the charac ter of S i r Brook whi le Falstaff boas ts of his s u c c e s s with Mrs Ford . 2.ii Page's garden It is the even ing and A n n e ' s three sui tors have the idea of se renad ing her. Nico la i b lends this s u c c e s s i o n of s c e n e s into a musica l ly cont inuous number. S l ende r enters with com ic fear fu lness but h ides on the arrival of Dr C a j u s , w h o s e comica l mixture of F rench and mispronounced Engl ish increases the humour of the situation. Hear-ing Fenton approach ing , he too h ides. Fenton , thinking he has the ga rden to himself, s ings a R o m a n z e wh ich is full of cha rm ing melod ic invention with a smoo th , express ive str ing accompan imen t and bird-like trills in p icco lo and flute. W h e n A n n e appea rs , they s ing a duettino, an e laborate viol in so lo en r i ches the orchestra l co lour and the sect ion c l o s e s with an ingen ious c a d e n z a for the two vo ices and so lo viol in. In the conc lud ing quartet, the lovers p ledge themse lves to e a c h other whi le S l ende r and Dr C a j u s commen t in s u p p r e s s e d fury from their hiding p laces . 2. iii Inside Ford's house In a d ia logue s c e n e Falstaff is aga in court ing Mrs Ford . A s before, Mrs P a g e interrupts them with the news that Ford is com ing . Th is t ime they d i sgu ise Falstaff as an old w o m a n . Ford and his wife confront e a c h other in the duet and s h e mocks his jea lous fury. T h e f inale fol lows without a break as S lender , Dr C a j u s and P a g e ar-rive; Falstaff is s m u g g l e d out under their very n o s e s a n d t h e y aga in s e a r c h the house fruitlessly. ACT 3./ Page's house T h e s c e n e beg ins in d ia logue. Mrs Ford and Mrs P a g e have exp la ined the si tuat ion to their h u s b a n d s ; Ford is penitent. They p lan to teach Falstaff a l esson he will not forget, and Mrs P a g e s ings the bal lad of H e m e the Hunter. Mrs P a g e privately tel ls A n n e (in d ia logue) that s h e has a r ranged for her to marry Dr C a j u s that night; then P a g e tells A n n e that he has a r ranged for her to marry S lender . A n n e , a lone , vows to c o n -found both of them and marry Fen ton , aff irming her determinat ion to outwit them in the ar ia . 3. a Windsor Park T h e moon r ises dur ing the orchestra l introduction and Fo rd , P a g e and their ne ighbours s ing the cho rus 'Oh Swee t -est M o o n ' a s they prepare for Falstaff 's arr ival . Falstaff enters d r e s s e d a s H e m e the Hunter and in the trio Mrs Ford and Mrs P a g e flirt teas ing ly with h im. T h e n fol lows a cho rus of the ne igh-bours d r e s s e d a s e lves and a harp so lo a n n o u n c e s the arrival of A n n e d r e s s e d a s T i tan ia and Fenton a s O b e r o n . P a g e appea rs d r e s s e d as H e m e and the terrif ied Falstaff is further tormented. In the meant ime, S l ende r and Dr C a j u s go off with e a c h other, d i sgu ised a s e lves, both thinking that they are with A n n e , and A n n e and Fenton hurry away to get mar r ied ; there is then a genera l d a n c e and chorus . In the final d ia logue, A n n e reconc i les her par-ents to her marr iage with Fen ton , and the ope ra conc ludes with a cha rm ing trio for the ' merry wives ' , M rs Ford and Mrs P a g e , with A n n e .
