Verdi: Falstaff (glyndebourne Opera House)
The inspirational Vladimir Jurowski conducts Verdis last opera, his only true comic opera. An international cast is led by Christopher Purves in the larger-than-life role of the corpulent Falstaff, whose profligacy both outrages and inspires the citizens of Windsor. Richard Joness production brings out the humour, bitterness and anger mixed with tenderness and wisdom embodied in the Shakespeare plays on which the libretto is based. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.
