A beer at the opera with Falstaff

Tom Service [The Guardian, 27 November 2009]

That rarest of beers: a lager you can take in to the second act of the opera! Falstaff, to be precise, in Glyndebourne on Tour’s production at the Milton Keynes Theatre. In honour of Verdi’s and Shakespeare’s “globe of impurity”, the magnificently gluttonous Sir John Falstaff (sung and acted with brilliant, gleeful energy and insight by Johanthan Veira), I enjoyed a San Miguel during act two’s shenanigans, as Ford and the Merry Wives end up dumping Sir John in the Thames.
