23."Tutto nel mondo è burla"

The whole world's a joke

All the world’s a joke.
We’re all born jesters,
sometimes following our heart,
sometimes our reason.

We’re all dupes!
And all laugh at each other.
But the best laugh of all
is the last laugh.

A comic opera from Giuseppe Verdi, Falstaff follows the misadventures of an ageing ladies' man who still believes he's got what it takes and is confident he has the last laugh on all around him.
