Falstaff19980725

Opera scholar Roger Parker traces the little-known story of Verdi and England that culminated in his last opera, `Falstaff'.

In a tour that takes him around London and into the English countryside, Parker argues that seemingly unremarkable moments of contact between Verdi and England actually tell us much about the composer's music and his politics.
