Falstaff is both funny and a musical masterpiece. Certainly the greatest comic opera after Mozart
It's a little too long for a comedy. And with all my love to Strauss Der Rosenkavalier seems to me the least memorable. Maybe the case is that I've never seen it in the theater.Isn't Der Rosenkavlier supposed to be a comedy? However it's the comic bits of the score (most of the Ochs stuff in fact) that I find tedious.
