Can't understand a word. May I hear the Jim Morrison version, please?

If music be the food of love, I'd rather have Purcell.

I think Britten has a thing or two to say about Shakespeare, as well, but I might be mistaken. Verdi's Falstaff is definitely amusing, but not completely true to the bard - although, perhaps, if not true to the text of Henry II, quite true to the spirit of the Merry Wives.
