Based, in part, on Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor and King Henry IV, Falstaff is Verdi's last work for the stage - and only his second comic opera. And yet the humour in this multilayered masterpiece is distinctly wry, for all the main characters exhibit an array of of human weaknesses that are implacably exposed by Verdi and his librettist Arrigo Boito.
