Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi
12:56pm Monday 2nd December 2013 in What's on
FALSTAFF by Giuseppe Verdi will be screened live in HD via satellite to Theatr Mwldan, on December 14, at 6pm.
Verdi's brilliant final masterpiece Falstaff, in its first new Met production in 50 years, will be conducted by Met Music Director James Levine in his first HD transmission in nearly two years.
Ambrogio Maestri sings the iconic basso buffo role of Sir John Falstaff, the boorish, blustery character originally seen in Shakespeare's Henry IV and Merry Wives of Windsor.
Angela Meade is Alice Ford, one of many objects of Falstaff's affection, and Stephanie Blythe is Mistress Quickly in a cast that also includes Lisette Oropesa as Nannetta, Jennifer Johnson Cano as Meg Page, Paolo Fanale in his Met debut as Fenton, and Franco Vassallo as Ford.
