The nearly eighty-year-old Verdi debuted Falstaff at La Scala on the 9th of February 1893. Based on the play The Merry Wives of Windsor, Falstaff was Verdi's last opera, which covered nearly fifty-four years of creative activity and the most perfect enigmatic work ever composed by the musician from Busseto.

Boito Arrigo skillfully preserved his original traits, converging them into a libretto that is agile, concise and imaginative. His Falstaff is not a solely comical figure; he is a complex character with a cynical outlook on life.
