VERDI’S OPERA ON SHAKESPEARE’S TRAGEDY IS CONDUCTED BY ANTONIO PAPPANO, WITH A MAGNIFICENT CAST INCLUDING ANNA NETREBKO, ŽELJKO LUČIĆ AND IL DEBRANDO  D’ARCANGEL.

Phyllida Lloyd’s 2002 production for The Royal Opera is richly hued, shot through with black, red and gold. The witches – imagined by designer Anthony Wardas strange, scarlet-turbaned creatures – are ever-present agents of fate. Lloyd depicts the Macbeths’ childlessness as the dark sadness lurking behind their terrible deeds.The Royal Opera’s production uses Verdi’s 1865 Paris revision of the opera, which includes Lady Macbeth’s riveting aria ‘La luce langue.
