From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Verdi's crowning triumph is brought vividly to life in a period instrument performance with a glittering international cast.

8.30 Verdi: the Unlikely Englishman Roger Parker traces the little-known story of Verdi and England that culminated in his last opera, Falstaff.
