BOSTON: and Book Dealers generally.Sold by Uusio THE MEREY WIYES OF WINDSOR. celebrated^HxS comic Opera is founded on the Shakspearean comedy of the same name, and consists of scenes from it slightly altered. The identity will be re- cognized at once, however. Sir Johx Falstaff makes love at the same moment to two married women, Mks. Page and Mrs. Ford, and these ladies determine to lure him on for the purpose of punishing him for his temerity. His escape from the search of a jealous husband, by concealing himself in a basket of soiled linen going to the wash, is one of the laughable features of the First Act; and the beating which he receives when disguised as an old woman, is scarcely a more comic situation than that in which we find him boasting of his success with Mrs. Ford to her husband; who he supposes to be another person. The Opera ends with the Fairy Extravaganza of the comedy. DRAMATIS PERSONS SIR JOHN FALSTAFF. MR. and MRS. FORD,) Citizens of WindsorFENTON. MR. and PAGE,] SLENDER. In love with ANNA PAGE.
