A wonderfully colourful production,
Aquinas | celestial heights, UK | 02/24/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have seen Falstaff 4 times, I think, and this was my favourite production. Brynn Terfel is great as the old fool and the colourful stage settings highlight the riotous colour of the period. Of course, Falstaff is not for everyone - its Verdi, as he was never heard before - no long arias but these delicious lyrical phrasings; I am thinking here of the aching potrayal of the young lovers in the garden.
