An undisputed master of Falstaff,
Music Director James Levine conducts Verdi’s opera for the first time at the
Met since 2005. Robert Carsen’s production—the first new Met Falstaff
since 1964—is set in the English countryside in the mid-20th
century. Ambrogio Maestri (last season’s Dulcamara in the Opening Night
production of L’Elisir d’Amore) sings the title role of the brilliant
and blustery Sir John Falstaff, opposite a marvelous ensemble that includes
Angela Meade, Stephanie Blythe, Lisette Oropesa, and Franco Vassallo.
Falstaff is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera; Royal Opera
House, Covent Garden; Teatro alla Scala, Milan; the Canadian Opera Company,
Toronto; and De Nederlandse Opera, Amsterdam.
