Falstaff

by Giuseppe Verdi
Opera in three acts
Libretto by Arrigo Boito
in Italian
In Shakespeare’s drama Sir John Falstaff, an aristocratic crook, loses his way and finds himself in Windsor – amongst hard-working citizens, who are now forced to defend everything they have worked for and have earned against Falstaff, that uninvited guest: their money, their children, their wives. Windsor’s women and children, however, have minds of their own and know very well how to help themselves.

Half a century after his first success with Nabucco, 80-year-old Giuseppe Verdi concludes his life’s work with one of world literature’s best musical comedies ever.
