Macbeth - Giuseppe Verdi

Terrifyingly beautiful, Macbeth rivets spectators in their seats by plunging them into the tortuous abysses of Evil. Verdi ingeniously pays tribute to Shakespeare’s work with scenes so stunning that they have become classics.

Upon his return from battle, Macbeth and his wife force the hand of destiny to usurp the throne of Scotland. However, their blind ambition eventually takes its toll.  Both the reins of power and the couple’s sanity slip out of their control as they become increasingly conscious of just what they have done.
