Description
Verdi's boozy knight is portrayed by Bernd Weikl in this 2010 production from the Pfalztheater in Kaiserslautern, and he also directed. The opening set sports a backdrop of the earth with "Tutto nel mondo è burla" (All the world's a stage) written over it, as various characters lean out of trap doors. Fanfare praised "the first-rate Ford of Carlos Aguirre … with a robust, ringing, burnished dark baritone." Other participants in the merriment include Adelheid Fink (Alice Ford), Wioletta Hebrowska (Meg Page), Arlette Meißner (Nannetta), Yanyu Guo (Mistress Quickly), Steffen Schantz (Fenton), Alexis Wagner (Pistola), Marian Henze (Bardolfo), and John Pickering (Dr. Caius).

"Weikl is an admirable Falstaff…. He is capable of admirable sustained high notes, his Italian is clear and most important, every phrase is completely in character. Weikl's portrayal is the work of a significant artist who can dominate every moment he is onstage—notably in the first scene of Act III, where he achieves a touching blend of the ludicrous and the sympathetic."—Opera News
