2013 marks the bicentenary of Giuseppe Verdi’s birthday. On the occasion of this anniversary Arthaus Musik has already released three box sets with outstanding productions of his operas – now look forward to the compilation of his prominent Shakespeare adaptations. Giuseppe Verdi had actually meant to conclude composing operas when he received the libretto by Arrigo Boito based on Shakespeare’s play “Othello”. This Milan production, directed by Graham Vick, inaugurated the 2001 Scala season and at the same time was a grand conclusion of the Verdi year. Plácido Domingo, Barbara Frittoli and Leo Nucci excel in the main roles.

Inspired by the dramatic work of William Shakespeare, the composer pultimately conceived his own musical drama with “Macbeth”. In 2001 the Zurich Opera achieved a compelling and powerful production by David Pountney under the musical direction of former principal conductor Franz Welser-Möst with Thomas Hampson, Paoletta Marrocu und Roberto Scandiuzzi.

Adapted from Shakespeare’s play “The Merry Wives of Windsor” Verdi’s “Falstaff” was destined to become his last opera as well as one of his rare comedies. This production conducted by Zubin Mehta was recorded at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in 2006. The director Luca Ronconi staged a modern farce that evokes modern Great Britain in imagery and social context. The main roles are vividly portrayed by Barbara Frittoli, Ruggero Raimondi and Manuel Lanza.
