“When it comes to theatrical flair, captivating costumes, stage antics and imagination, there are not many shows on Broadway to rival the Met’s new Falstaff.” This visual feast, served up by director Robert Carsen, is a “thoughtful, affecting and hilarious staging that updates the action from the time of Henry IV to England in the 1950s” (New York Times). James Levine conducts Verdi’s final masterpiece with “affectionate energy” while Ambrogio Maestri projects “towering bravado and rare baritonal fervor in the title role” (Financial Times).

Maestri heads a stellar ensemble cast of veteran and up-and-coming Met stars, including Angela Meade (Alice), Stephanie Blythe (Mistress Quickly), Franco Vasallo (Ford), and Jennifer Johnson Cano (Meg). Lisette Oropesa and Paolo Fanale are the young lovers, Nannetta and Fenton.

History

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.
