ABOUT VERDI's FALSTAFF

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Virginia Opera begins its new season with Verdi's final opera — a pure comic gem to cap off a lifetime of tragic masterpieces. Verdi's grand finale, Falstaff has long been admired for both its outstanding orchestration and its brilliant libretto, which is based on Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry IV.

Falstaff loves the ladies, but they don't love him back! After a night of heavy drinking and bragging about the women he has romanced over the years, the lecherous and corpulent knight attempts to woo two ladies at the same time. However, his seduction plans backfire when the clever women team up to outwit the old rascal!
