Falstaff

Falstaff

Giuseppe Verdi borrowed the protagonist of his final opera from William Shakespeare. Inspired by the cheerful anarchist Falstaff, the elderly Verdi reinvented himself in an elegant and finely-wrought musical drama. The crowning jewel of Verdi's oeuvre. This will mark Oscar winner Christoph Waltz's second foray as director at Opera Vlaanderen, following his 'Der Rosenkavalier'.
