Antonio Pappano conducts Macbeth, Verdi’s opera based on Shakespeare’s tragedy, with a magnificent cast including Anna Netrebko, Željko Lučić and Ildebrando D’Arcangelo.
Verdi’s life-long love affair with Shakespeare’s works began with Macbeth, a play he considered to be ‘one of the greatest creations of man’. With his librettist Francesco Maria Piave Verdi set out to create ‘something out of the ordinary’. Their success is borne out in every bar of a score that sees Verdi at his most theatrical: it bristles with demonic energy.
The performance lasts about 3 hours 20 minutes, including one interval.
