Turn down the lights and switch on your imagination for a dark and stormy night with opera’s master storyteller, Guiseppe Verdi.
Macbeth is a rough brew of the psychological, political and supernatural. When witches predict a great future for Macbeth he is shocked, but his wife is elated and wants to hasten fate along. One murder turns into many as the power couple become pawns of ambition, embroiled in their own plot.
