FALSTAFF in Stuttgart

Logo of the Oper Stuttgart



Giuseppe Verdi
In Italian with German supertitles

In Shakespeare’s drama Sir John Falstaff, an aristocratic crook, loses his way and finds himself in Windsor – amongst hard-working citizens, who are now forced to defend everything they have worked for and have earned against that uninvited guest: their money, their children, their women. Windsor’s women and children, however, have minds of their own.
Half a century after his first success with Nabucco, 80-year-old Giuseppe Verdi concludes his life’s work with one of world literature’s best musical comedies ever.
