The Scottish PlayMacbeth is one of the most famous Shakespeare stories, and it’s beautiful when it unfolds in opera. This is a story of the supernatural, a story of madness and murder, a thrilling tale of kings and queens and intrigue. Can you think of a better reason for going to the opera?
Verdi’s opera is based on the play, of course, so Shakespeare buffs will certainly recognize the thrilling story. The lavish costumes and sets are provided by Opera Pacific Victoria, and the performance is sung in beautiful Italian.
