"This version of Shakespearean comedy has almost naturally crossed with the opera FALSTAFF by Giuseppe Verdi.
Our text for many parts is based on the libretto of the Verdi opera written by the poet / musician Arrigo Boito (in fact a lyric reduction of Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor): a very musical theatrical performance was born, full of rhythm and a great stage game completely dedicated to the public, to the spectators' pleasure of meeting the great character Falstaff and his band of nocturnal inhabitants of the Osteria della Giarrettiera where our hero lives and performs his deeds.
Faced with this slight tension, the text feeds on some fragments of Shakespeare's Henry IV, where we see Falstaff engaged in educating the Prince of Wales in his world of the Garter's Tavern and then violently repudiated by him at the time of the ascent to the throne of England. "
Gianfranco Pedullà
