Glyndebourne Opera: Falstaff at Phoenix Cinema

Throughout his long career, Verdi longed to find a good subject for a comic opera. Towards the very end of it he found that subject, in the vast and jovial shape of Shakespeare's John Falstaff. It was the suggestion of his librettist, Arrigo Boito, with whom he had worked on Otello, and Verdi was at first resistant. This revival of the production by Richard Jones, first seen at Glyndebourne in 2009, places the action firmly in Windsor with recognisably English characters. Sir Mark Elder conducts the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, giving audiences a rare opportunity to hear the lyrical glories of the score performed on instruments of Verdi's time.
