Verdi: Falstaff / Jurowski, Purves, Christoyannis, Kuznetsova [DVD]

Album Summary

>Verdi, Giuseppe : Falstaff
Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The inspirational Vladimir Jurowski conducts Verdi's last opera, his only true comic opera. An international cast is led by Christopher Purves in the larger-than-life role of the corpulent Falstaff, whose profligacy both outrages and inspires the citizens of Windsor. Richard Jones's production brings out the humor, bitterness and anger - mixed with tenderness and wisdom - embodied in the Shakespeare plays on which the libretto is based. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.
