Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi
The hilarious misadventures of the old knight Sir John Falstaff, erotomaniac, windbag and boastful, wishing to seduce two rich Windsor damsels, will serve as a framework for an exemplary libretto, both concise and sparkling, by Arrigo Boito, after Shakespeare. Verdi only had to graft a music with dazzling verve, handling with naturalness both the quasi-spoken song and the lyrical flights of fancy on a most voluble orchestral accompaniment. The pathos of these ten characters with strong characters rubs shoulders with our liberating laughter, until the masterly final fugue (in C major!) on the words “everything in the world is a farce”, symbol of this strikingly tonic masterpiece. Let’s hold our breath, the duo Michael Schønwandt and David Hermann is at work, it promises us exciting moments of musical theater.
