That hilarious Macbeth

October 31, 2012 Comments Off on That hilarious Macbeth

It is reported that Verdi wrote Falstaff in response to Rossini’s criticism that “he [Verdi] wrote only tragedies because he could not write a comedy if his life depended on it”.  Rossini was a good judge of character, it is therefore perhaps not surprising that Falstaff is not funny; but — having heard last night’s I must say – his claim that Verdi could not write a comedy was wrong: Macbeth is absolutely hilarious.
