Why See Metropolitan Opera: Macbeth?

The fickle nature of loyalty in the face of great reward is explored in this pivotal opera by Giuseppe Verdi. This opera was Verdi's very first Shakespearean adaptation and was based directly on the Shakespeare's Macbeth, a play he referred to as 'one of the greatest creations of man'.

This production by the Metropolitan Opera makes an exciting addition to their 2014/2015 season and sees baritone Zeljko Lucic perform in the title role of Macbeth. He will be joined on-stage by Anna Netrebko, who will play the role of his conspiring wife, Lady Macbeth.

The opera is produced by Adrian Noble, the former Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and sees Fabio Luisi conducting the orchestra.
