Giuseppe Verdi

Falstaff


Comic opera in three acts, in Italian with Hungarian and English surtitles
Verdi’s clever riposte to Rossini’s dig that he couldn’t write comedy. Aging gentleman’s midlife crisis complete with romance, escapes in laundry hampers, a dunking in the Thames, and woodland shenanigans. Duets, quartets, and musical quotations inspired by Shakespeare with a knight and his reality show – and a guaranteed happy ending.
