Metropolitan Opera: Falstaff

By TheAssistOrg
Written December 18, 2013
Fantastical wonderful way to be "at the Opera" with many, many surprises I would never see if I went to the Metro Opera itself instead at my local Movie place. Seeing the major singers talking about themselves and the opera of the day, PLUS seeing how complete changes on the stage is done so quickly with professionals without much if any changes and no talking. Incredible! I look for the the next one available.

Falstaff

Great opera and wonderful cast including all main line singers. Verdi's music fit the comedy. It was an operatic farce of the first order. Similar to The Barber...; Marriage of Figaro; and on the stage, "the Italian Straw Hat." A couple of the women singers were a bit hefty, but their voices were wonderful.

Metropolitan Opera production of Falstaff

Falstaff is one of my favorite operas! I enjoyed Ambrogi Maestri in the title role; the staging was a bit strange, but in the opera world, it is not unusual to find a director who wants to make a name for himself try to use controversial staging to make his statement. Nothing could alter the beauty of the musical score, the singers were very good, and the orchestra sounded wonderful under the direction of Maestro Levine. I would recommend it to anyone who loves opera to check this out.

Mostly elating laughs in elderly population due to old fashioned style.. In general, good but ntg. special... and the main actor plus several actors were obese and ugly. Rate: 6/10.
