Verdi – Macbeth
English Touring Opera
The witches have a prophecy: Macbeth will be king, but the
crown comes at a terrible price.
The blood-soaked path to power is followed by two characters
who are among the very finest created by Shakespeare,
and by Verdi.
Gerry Cornelius conducts his first opera for ETO, directed by James Dacre. Andrew Porter’s careful English translation brings as much of Shakespeare to the production as possible.
