Led by conductor Daniele Gatti, this Zurich Opera production of Verdi’s Falstaff features Barbara Frittoli and Ambrogio Maestri in a boisterous and high-spirited production staged by Sven-Eric Bechtolf.

“ …it is a visual delight… And the cast is splendid in every way, particularly Ambrogio Malestri in the title role.”

Giuseppe Verdi’s Falstaff

Verdi's final opera, and the third of his stage works to be based on a Shakespeare play, premiered at Milan’s La Scala in 1893, a triumphal success for the almost 80-year-old composer. Baritone Victor Maurel, who sang the title role, reprised his performance in the opera’s U.S. premiere at the Met two years later. In the 2013–14 season, Music Director James Levine conducts a new production directed by Robert Carsen, the first new Met Falstaff since 1964.
