The world premiere of the previously unrecorded French version of Macbeth! Verdi considered Shakespeare’s tragedy to be ‘one of the greatest creations of man’. The opera’s unbroken dramatic line, incisive libretto and range of expression from the comic to the sublime, made it a work that was way ahead of its time. Verdi explores unusual theatrical characters with Macbeth, the darkness of which resonated with his desire to convey Shakespeare’s brutal realism in a visionary masterpiece that would not be fully appreciated until the mid-1900s. Macbeth is performed here in its rarely heard 1865 French language version.
