Verdi's Macbeth
Opera on 3

Verdi began his life-long relationship with Shakespeare's works with
Macbeth - considered by him to be 'one of the greatest creations of man'.
The star cast is led by soprano Anna Netrebko, as Lady Macbeth, who is
driven by her formidable ambition for her husband Macbeth, sung by baritone
Željko Lučić, to become King. Verdi's score bursts with energy and drive,
full of eerie silences and atmosphere, and expansive melodies. Recorded
earlier this Spring, Antonio Pappano conducts the Chorus and Orchestra of
the Royal Opera, Covent Garden in the revival of Phyllida Lloyd's 2002
James Naughtie presents and is joined by Verdi scholar, Flora Willson.
