Reviews
‘…deliciously comic production…vividly filmed…The singers are on top form, dominated by Terfel’s Falstaff…’
Musical Opinion

‘...a true joy to the eye as Bryn Terfel dazzles us with stature, voice and gesture...’
Diapason (Translation)

‘…an excellent DVD of the wonderful Verdi Falstaff… Haitink's reading allows us to fully appreciate Verdi's brilliant ensemble writing and amply demonstrates why Falstaff has been called the composer's greatest masterpiece. It is doubtful we'll see a better Falstaff in our lifetime.’
La Scena Musicale

‘…compact disc quality sound and pin sharp pictures. It’s a delightful performance with a top notch supporting cast…’
Birmingham Evening Mail
