A tribute to the Shakespeare anniversary with a powerful and surreal staging of the classic, Macbeth.

General of the victorious Scottish armies, Macbeth hears a prophecy from three witches that predict he will be the next King of Scotland. Believing this premonition, his wife encourages him to kill the King. His divine right drives Macbeth to be bloodthirsty with friends and opponents alike but alone and racked with guilt, he faces his last battle and death.

Giuseppe Verdi felt inspired by Shakespeare's work and his devotion led to the first opera based on one of the writer's texts. In this version, Christof Loy directs the action in a classic timeless space with surrealistic touches dominated by blacks and whites, adding to the great dramatic intensity.
