FALSTAFF

Falstaff is commedia lirica in three acts by Giuseppe Verdi, adapted by Arrigo Boito from Shakespeare’s plays The Merry Wives of Windsor and scenes from Henry IV. It was Verdi’s last opera, written in the composer’s ninth decade, and only the second of his 26 operas to be a comedy. It was also the third of Verdi’s operas to be based on a Shakespearean play, following his earlier Macbeth and Otello.
