English Touring Opera presents: Verdi's Macbeth

English Touring Opera presents: Verdi's Macbeth

Thursday, 16 May 2019, 7.30pm

The witches have a prophecy: Macbeth will be king, but the crown comes at a terrible price.

The blood-soaked path to power is followed by two characters who are among the very finest created by Shakespeare, and by Verdi.

Gerry Cornelius conducts his first opera for ETO, directed by James Dacre. Andrew Porter’s careful English translation brings as much of Shakespeare to the production as possible.

Sung in English with English surtitles
Running time: approx. 2 hours 30 minutes (inc. interval)
