Description
Giuseppe Taddei portrays Falstaff as a complex human being in this 1956 studio production from Radiotelevisione Italiana, while the brilliant conducting of the legendary Tullio Serafin buoys the unfolding of Verdi's bittersweet comic masterpiece. Other assets include the beauteous songbirds Rosanna Carteri and Anna Moffo as Alice Ford and Nanetta, as well as the superb Peruvian tenor Luigi (Luis) Alva as Fenton.

"In a category of its own is the historic 1956 film production from Italy on VAI audio, led by Tullio Serafin and featuring the great Giuseppe Taddei in his prime.... An absolutely charming delight that every opera lover should try to see and hear."—Fanfare

"This account of Verdi's Falstaff, his last opera written as the end of a long, vastly experienced life approached, is not only a valuable historical document but also a refreshingly naturalistic production, uncluttered by any directorial gimmicks."—Birmingham Post
