Giuseppe Verdi
Arrigo Boito

Verdi's final opera – a grandiose comedy: the roly-poly roué Sir John writes the same love letter to two different women. Logically, this leads to plenty of turbulence on the stage. This jolly work of Verdi's old age reaches its high point in the recognition: "Everything on earth is a joke!" Ambrogio Maestri as Falstaff! A subtle production. Oh, Verdi lover, what more could you ask?

In Italian with German surtitles
