Verdi’s Macbeth by Scottish Opera
REVIVAL OF THE 2005 PRODUCTION - Sung in English with piano-accompaniment
'A living, breathing Goya painting, drenched in blood, mud and lust…prepare to be haunted' *****AcrosstheArts.com
Dominic Hill, Artistic Director of the Citizens Theatre, revives his brooding, atmospheric Macbeth in celebration of the 2014 Year of Homecoming.
Inspired by events in the war-torn Balkans, Hill’s production is at once contemporary and ageless; a world of camouflage-clad leaders and grungy, chain-smoking witches, where power is all but comes at a price. Unsettling and full of tension, the drama of Shakespeare’s play is underlined by the brilliance of Verdi’s score.
Desperate and furious, at times ethereal and visionary, his music gets to the heart of this powerful story, intensifying the tragedy as Macbeth’s destiny unfolds.
