From Salzburg Festival: "Falstaff" by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901). Conductor: Zubin Mehta - Stage director: Damiano Michieletto. With Ambrogio Maestri (Sir John Falstaff), Fiorenza Cedolins (Mrs Alice Ford), Massimo Cavalletti (Ford), Eleonora Buratto (Nannetta), Elisabeth Kulman (Mrs Quickly), Javier Camarena (Fenton). In his last opera Verdi was aiming not to revive an amusing or ridiculous figure in the tradition of the Italian opera buffa but to portray a human character in all his different facets. In cooperation with the experienced librettist Arrigo Boito he wrote a lyric comedy quite unlike any other.
