* Private and exclusive events for members of the Círculo del Liceo

The Círculo del Liceo hosted a new session of the Opera and Screen cycle, with the screening of the opera Falstaff by Giuseppe Verdi, in a new production premiered at the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence in July 2021, co-produced by the Opéra National de Lyon, the Komische Oper Berlin and the Bolshoi Theatre. The event was presented by the journalist Rosa Massagué.

Australian stage director Barrie Kosky has always shown a special affinity for humorous plots and has often been able to discover streaks of humor where there seemed to be none. With Falstaff, an aged Verdi embarked on his last opera, with which he returned to comedy after half a century. But Falstaff is also a tribute to his ancestors (Mozart, Rossini), contemporaries (Wagner) and even to himself, a comic epilogue to a life full of tragedies.
