MACBETH

GIUSEPPE VERDI / Friday 7 October 2016, 20.00 h

Melodrama in four acts.

Giuseppe Verdi venerated Shakespeare's plays and this was his first opera based on a text by the Bard. He wanted to achieve "something extraordinary", a phrase which sums up his enthusiasm.

In this version, stage director Christof Loy chooses a classical, timeless setting and adds touches of surrealism. Black and white predominate and the drama is intense.
