1.00 Opera Matinee Falstaff
Antonio Salieri 's lesser known version of the story immortalised by Verdi is one of the very first operatic settings of a Shakespeare play. The opera presents a simplified version of The Merry Wives of Windsor, omitting complicated subplots and the lovers Anne and Fenton.
But the self-benefiting antics of the lovable buffoon
Falstaff remain the pivot of the action. A performance from the Schwetzingen Festival in Germany, recorded last April.

Sir John Falstaff:
