Présentation de l'éditeur

VERDI: Falstaff (complete opera) Newly translated libretto, program notes, and synopsis. Link to audio tracks.

Mariano Stabile, Renata Tebaldi, Cesare Valletti, et al.: vocal soloists
La Scala Orchestra & Chorus
Victor de Sabata: conductor

Verdi’s last opera, written when he was approaching eighty, was only the second comedy of his long career, following the ill-fated Un giorno di regno of fifty years before. His friend and collaborator Arrigo Boito, who had with some difficulty talked him into composing Otello several years earlier, now had an easier time convincing him to crown his glory with one more tribute to his beloved Shakespeare. The three principals are all famous portrayers of their roles, aided by an outstanding supporting cast. Mariano Stabile was a veteran Italian basso buffo who had the role of Falstaff in his belly, if not his bones. Renata Tebaldi was the most famous Italian lyric soprano of her era and she remains, along with Maria Callas, the most loved soprano of recent years. Cesare Valletti was a tenore di grazia, a tenor with a light, flexible head voice of exquisite beauty. Live performance, Milan, May 26, 1951.

“One of the most remarkable performances of anything by Verdi ever captured on a disc. Mariano Stabile’s Falstaff was a legendary achievement, dramatically and vocally, and this recording is worth every penny just for his authentic, genuinely buffo take on the role. Paolo Silveri is excellent as Ford, and the youthful Renata Tebaldi makes a glorious noise as his wife. But these undoubted stars are eclipsed by de Sabata, who creates a performance of electric immediacy with an extraordinary attention to the score’s detail and architecture.” — Rough Guide to Opera

This "English-Italian" libretto presents the two languages entirely separately making it pretty worthless. Don't waste your money thinking you are getting a simulataneous translation. A complete waste!

I bought a lot of these Opera d'Oro libretto books recently. They're all set up the same way, so I'm putting this review on all the ones I bought because most don't have a review. So, if you've read this once you need not read it again.

These books have several good points, but unfortunately there's a huge problem which practically wipes out all of the good things.

The good first: The translations are excellent. I've seen lots of lousy translations, and these are way above average. Each book starts with a detailed synopsis of its opera, followed by 5 to 10 pages of program notes which give you lots of info about the opera. The table of contents is active, so you can click and jump to the beginning of any act in either language.

Now to the huge problem mentioned above: the original-language libretto is given complete by itself, and the English translation follows it. This means that the two languages are not side-by-side, like every other libretto you've ever seen in a CD booklet or online. The only ways to get the two side-by-side is to download the book onto 2 devices and hold them next to each other, or, on a computer, copy and paste one of the languages page by page into Wordpad (or whatever you use,) and then have that program open beside the Kindle book.

At the top of this page the Book Description gives info about a recording. That recording is not included with the book. The publisher should remove that info so people don't get misled.

If you want to see all 64 of the libretto books from this publisher, put "Opera d'Oro" into the Search box at the top of this page.
