FALSTAFF. Tutto nel mondo è burla
Commedia lirica in tre atti, libretto di Arrigo Boito.
Arrangiamento per ensemble da camera a cura di ALESSANDRO PALUMBO
Falstaff – whose composition started in1890 and finished when Verdi was almost 80 years old – closes the Verdian catalogue and represents a unique example of his mature composition style, after the youthful Un giorno di regno. “It’s been forty that I’ve wished to write a comic opera – wrote Verdi in 1890 – and it’s been fifty years that I’ve known Le allegre comari di Windsor; also… the usual “buts” that I find everywhere and that have always opposed to the satisfaction of this desire of mine.” Encouraged by the success of Otello, Arrigo Boito managed to convince the composer to work on a new libretto based on a Shakespearian subject. Falstaff was finally staged on February 9 of 1893 at Teatro alla Scala di Milano, gathering the awe of the audience and the applauses of Giacomo Puccini and Pietro Mascagni.
