Chicago Symphony Orchestra presents Falstaff

  • Chicago Symphony Center 220 South Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL, 60604 United States (map)

Riccardo Muti's cycle of Giuseppe Verdi's three Shakespeare operas culminates in performances of Falstaff. With his incomparable musicianship, command of style and unique understanding of Verdi's genius, Maestro Muti will make Falstaff both a memorable highlight of the season and a crowning achievement of his Verdi performances in Chicago. Singing the title role is Ambrogio Maestri, "the most sought after Falstaff singer of his time" (The New York Times).
