The Metropolitan Opera: Falstaff
Director Robert Carsen and Maestro James Levine join forces for the Met’s first new staging of Falstaff since 1964. Carsen, joined by set designer Paul Steinberg and costume designer Brigitte Reiffenstuel, will discuss the production, which takes place in the mid 20th century English countryside. Met artists will perform excerpts from this comic masterpiece, Verdi’s final opera.
