by Giuseppe Verdi
Verdi’s opera is a powerful musical interpretation of Shakespeare’s timeless drama of ambition and its personal cost, raising questions of fate, superstition, guilt, and power.
This production of Macbeth places the action of the opera in a non-specific, post-World War II Scotland.
Lady Macbeth, as the true protagonist of the story, has the most commanding of the great solos, and her famous sleepwalking scene in Act IV is a study of guilt unlike any other.
