The staging works very well because it is coherent, well realized. Most of all, it is funny. Michieletto underlines the humorous side of the story and conductor Zubin Mehta’s musical ideas follow this direction. This lightness is reflected in the orchestral performance. As usual, the Vienna Philharmonic is at ease with Italian repertoire.Even if the whole cast is good, baritone Ambrogio Maestri stands out. He is the embodiment of Falstaff (he also appeared in this role last year at Covent Garden), with a beautiful, loud voice in addition to the physique du rôle. The tenor Javier Camarena is a surprising Fenton, warmly applauded at the end. A pivotal point is the group of women on the stage most of the time. Women, indeed, are Falstaff’s obsession. They are cheeky, beautifully garbed in 19th-century dress designed by Carla Teti. The women are vocally homogeneous and the elocution is good, both from the native Italians and the non-native singers. They act also very well. The public hailed this performance as a success.This production gives a chance to think through the opera to our mortality with a different point of view.
