Presented by Victoria Bond

Sir John Falstaff, one of Western theater’s greatest comedic characters, bursts to life in Verdi’s final opera. Arrigo Boito’s expertly crafted libretto, based on several of William Shakespeare’s comedies, offers a rollicking overview of Falstaff’s adventures while retaining the character’s deep humanity. Victoria Bond will examine the journey of adapting this towering figure for the operatic stage, as well as Falstaff’s significance as a capstone for Verdi’s extraordinary career.
