Giuseppe VERDI was one of the greatest Italian opera composers. He composed numerous historical dramas and tragedies during the 19th century, but "Falstaff" is his only work of comedy, which he took on at the end of his career. Based on SHAKESPEARE's comedy "The Merry Wives of Windsor", his lifetime's work is resplendent with the finesse attained by VERDI in his later years. This production of "Falstaff" produced by the New National Theatre, Tokyo is the one by Jonathan MILLER, noted for his work on the BBC Television Shakespeare project. The staging is elegant, and conveys depth of insight. The conductor is Maestro Carlo RIZZI, one of the finest in Italian opera. The title role is performed by Roberto DE CANDIA, who has appeared previously in a number of buffo roles, including at the New National Theatre, Tokyo. He is joined by Eva MEI as Alice and Mattia OLIVIERI as Ford; this line-up of Italian talent is a major drawcard. The Italians bring their impeccably-timed humour to make this comedy one to be enjoyed to the full.
