Opera Naples Summer Opera Film Series to Feature FALSTAFF With Ambrogio Maestri in September

Director Calixto Bieito reinterprets as an apocalyptic satire on entertainment and prototype scenario of modern society.

Director Calixto Bieito presents a surprise-packed production of Giuseppe Verdi's comic opera "Falstaff," which Bieito reinterprets as an apocalyptic satire on entertainment and prototype scenario of modern society. The new Hamburg production boasts a world-class cast with Ambrogio Maestri in the title role and Maija Kovalevska as Alice Ford. Bieito's take on "Falstaff" is a black comedy, exposing the tragicomic aspect of human existence.
