Beautiful melodies, Shakespearean dialogue, and brilliant orchestration combine in Giuseppe Verdi’s last opera. Falstaff weaves the tale of a portly, greedy knight who pledges his love to multiple married women. When the women discover his deception, they attempt revenge, involving a parade of comic characters who leave us to conclude that  “Everything in the world is jest!"  Sung in Italian.
