Come and join us to this Metropolitan Opera rebroadcast in High Definition of the “FALSTAFF” opera by Giuseppe Verdi on April 22, 2023.
Verdi’s glorious Shakespearean comedy features a brilliant ensemble cast in Robert Carsen’s celebrated staging. Baritone Michael Volle sings his first Verdi role at the Met as the caddish knight Falstaff, gleefully tormented by a trio of clever women who deliver his comeuppance.
In a remarkable career spanning six decades, Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901) composed 28 operas, at least half of which are at the core of today’s repertoire. Falstaff was his final work for the stage.
A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera; Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London; Teatro alla Scala, Milan; the Canadian Opera Company, Toronto; and Dutch National Opera, Amsterdam. Featured by COC in Toronto in October 2017.
Falstaff is sung in Italian, but English subtitles that will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.
The performance lasts approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes with one 20-minutes intermission
