An undisputed master of Falstaff, Music Director James Levine conducts Verdi's opera for the first time at the Met since 2005. Robert Carsen's production - the first new Met Falstaff since 1964 - is set in the English countryside in the mid-20th century. Ambrogio Maestri (last season's Dulcamara in the Opening Night production of L'Elisir d'Amore) sings the title role of the brilliant and blustery Sir John Falstaff, opposite a marvelous ensemble that includes Angela Meade, Stephanie Blythe, Lisette Oropesa, and Franco Vassallo.

Falstaff is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House (Covent Garden), Teatro alla Scala (Milan), the Canadian Opera Company (Toronto), and De Nederlandse Opera (Amsterdam).
