Hamburg seeks ‘very fat’ cast

Hamburg State Opera is putting on Verdi’s Falstaff.

It is seeking ‘extremely corpulent’ cast members of both sexes for December-January rehearsals.

The director is Calixto Bieito.

Nuff said.

  • Thanks so much for the picture of the Falstaff can!
    It was the beer that my dad used to drink. The brewery’s been out of business for years.
    Long-time San Franciscans will well remember the big illuminated beer glass by the freeway that endlessly kept emptying and refilling. I can’t recall now whether the sign advertised Falstaff or Hamm’s. Both brands are long gone.
