FALSTAFF

"Robert Carsen’s new take on Verdi’s final opera is a true delight."

The Classical Review

After it premiered, Robert Carsen’s new production of Verdi’s masterpiece was hailed by the press as “wonderful, thoughtful, affecting and hilarious” (The New York Times). Carsen’s staging updates the action from the time of Henry IV to a richly designed England in the 1950s. A splendid cast is led by the powerhouse Italian baritone Ambrogio Maestri, who simply owns the role of Falstaff. An undisputed master of “Falstaff”, Met’s Music Director James Levine conducts this performance.
