Verdi's Falstaff encores on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. It will be showing at the Palace Cineplex, Sovereign Centre, Liguanea, St Andrew, and Palace Multiplex, Fairview Shopping Centre, Montego Bay, St James.
An undisputed master of Verdi's final comic masterpiece, James Levine conducts Robert Carsen's acclaimed production, the first new Met Falstaff since 1964. Ambrogio Maestri sings the role of the blustery Sir John Falstaff, opposite a marvelous ensemble cast.
"When it comes to theatrical flair, captivating costumes, stage antics and imagination, there are not many Broadway shows to rival the Met's new Falstaff," the New York Times said in its review.
The Bloomberg News said: "What a perfect night. The new production of Verdi's last work is a delight from the first glimpse of Falstaff waking up after a drunken party to the final scene of the gallant knight standing atop a banquet table ready for another meal ... . Maestri brings both comedy and a strange majesty to the role. A part so easily played for laughs is given a deeper dimension."
The next live transmission will be Dvorak's sumptuously melodic opera, Rusalka, starring Renée Fleming, on Saturday, February 8, 2014, at 12:55 p.m. Tickets are on sale for the 2013/2014 season at participating theatre box offices and via the web at www.palaceamusement.com, with a Palace Card.
