Description
Director Luca Ronconi convincingly sets the action of Verdi's last opera (and one of his few comedies) in present-day England, which proves enormous fun. Ruggero Raimondi is one of the foremost Falstaffs of recent years, while Barbara Frittoli has sung the role of Alice Ford widely—including a production that marked the reopening of the Royal Opera House.

"The unusual production, Zubin Mehta's jaunty conducting and the genius of Verdi carry the day…. Bardolfo is a leather-clad punk with a mohawk, Pistola an aging biker. The Merry Wives are upper-middle-class suburban matrons…. Meg Page and Dame Quickly, with their handbags, picture hats and stuffy attire, look like chairwomen of the Windsor Garden Society. Costume designer Carlo Maria Diappi clearly had a ball…. Set designer Margherita Palli goes for realism throughout, until an appropriately magical coup de theater during the Act III scene-change to Windsor Forest. (Falstaff's elfin tormentors in the climax include a large contingent of heavily made-up, black-leather-clad Goth girls.)"—Opera News
