Giuseppe Verdi

Falstaff //

Lyric comedy in three acts · Libretto by Arrigo Boito based on the play by William Shakespeare · In Italian with German subtitles

Verdi’s lyric opera, inspired by Shakespeare’s tragic comedy »The Merry Wives of Windsor«, tells the story of Sir John Falstaff’s comically pitiful attempts at seduction, a man who loves wine, women and song far more than conventions and etiquette and who vastly overestimates his chances with the opposite sex.
