A lyric comedy in three acts, Falstaff is adapted from Shakespeareís plays, The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry IV. Verdiís last opera, and only the second of his 28 operas to be a comedy, tells the story of an aging knight and his fathomless appetites. Falstaff has long been a favorite with critics and musicians because of its brilliant orchestration, scintillating libretto and refined melodic invention. Verdiís brilliant masterpiece has its first new Met production in in nearly 50 years. Run time: 3:20
