Composer Giuseppe Verdi’s lifelong love affair with Shakespeare’s dramas began with Macbeth and a music score bristling with theatricality and demonic energy. This tragedy of a great Scottish warrior who attains the throne and is undone by ruthless ambition is stylishly directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Mama Mia!, The Iron Lady) and designed by Anthony Ward in rich hues of black, red and gold. Singers: Zeljko Lucic (Macbeth), Anna Netrebko (Lady Macbeth), Ildebrando D’Arcangelo (Banquo). Conductor: Antonio Pappano. Sung in Italian with English subtitles. Anticipated running time is 200 minutes, including intermission.
