December 14, 2013 – FALSTAFF (Verdi)

A lyric comedy in three acts, Falstaff is adapted from Shakespeare’s plays, The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry IV. Verdi’s last opera, and only the second of his 28 operas to be a comedy, tells the story of an aging knight and his fathomless appetites. Falstaff has long been a favorite with critics and musicians because of its brilliant orchestration, scintillating libretto and refined melodic invention. Verdi’s brilliant masterpiece has its first new Met production in in nearly 50 years.
