Why does Falstaff appeal to artists creating adaptations of Shakespeare’s work?

March 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Palm Beach Opera hosts a panel discussion with Francesco Izzo and Susan Jones to explore the appeal and challenges of adapting Shakespeare’s recurring character to an operatic idiom in Giuseppe Verdi’s Falstaff in conjunction with their 2023 production.

This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Palm Beach Opera. The library provides parking vouchers to cover the first two hours of parking for the City Center Garage for patrons who attend library programs. To receive a parking voucher, patrons must present a parking ticket from the City Center Garage located at 199 North Dixie Highway.
