Yes Falstaff is the master work ( Giuseppe Taddei very late in life was wonderful ) and Otello transcends Shakespeare in my opinion as a theatrical drama. Otello is less cluttered than the play, and the addition of music, and therefore dramatic space and rhythm, gives it a dimension that the spoken word alone lacks, even in the magnificent language of Shakespeare.
