Back by popular demand! Opera Bites, Sydney’s favourite boutique opera company has once again partnered with The Castlereagh Boutique Hotel to bring you an unforgettable evening of fully costumed popular opera complete with a bespoke menu and select fine wines to match. As you step through the doors of this breath-taking heritage listed dining room you’ll find yourself immersed in the world of operatic splendour.

“Medieval Banquet”

Join Falstaff himself for this medieval banquet amid the hilarity of Otto Niccolai’s operatic delight, The Merry Wives of Windsor. Revel in the boisterous energy of a medieval English inn and share a story or two with Shakespeare’s Fat Knight and his friends.

The weighty and boisterous Falstaff has fallen on hard times and, to cure his woes, has sent identical letters to woo both Mistress Page and Mistress Ford. The two wives agree to teach the overly amorous Falstaff a lesson he will not forget! Be part of the action in this operatic treasure sung in English, fully costumed and resplendent with beautiful, memorable and toe tapping tunes.

Following on from all the fine food, wine and song, enjoy chatting to the Opera Bites cast members over coffee or tea before making your merry way home, full of laughter and good cheer. Truly a mid-winter feast to remember.
