'Met Opera - Falstaff 2013' sees Verdi's brilliant final masterpiece have its first new Met production in nearly 50 years, conducted by James Levine and directed by Robert Carsen.
Ambrogio Maestri sings the iconic basso buffo role of Sir John Falstaff, the boorish, blustery character originally seen in Shakespeare's Henry IV and Merry Wives of Windsor. Angela Meade is Alice Ford, one of many objects of Falstaff's affection, and Stephanie Blythe is the sharp-tongued Mistress Quickly in a cast that also includes Lisette Oropesa as Nannetta, Jennifer Johnson Cano as Meg Page, Paolo Fanale in his Met debut as Fenton, and Franco Vassallo as Ford.
'Met Opera - Falstaff 2013' is the fourth of ten productions broadcast live to ODEON cinemas from the Met's 2013-2014 season.
