Verdi: Macbeth

Album Summary

>Verdi, Giuseppe : Macbeth
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Verdi was justifiably pleased with 'Macbeth', his tenth opera and his first on a Shakespearian subject - it would long remain his own favourite among his "early period" operas. Eighteen years later, at the invitation of the Theatre Lyrique in Paris, he substantially revised the score, and this is the version (sung in Italian) presented here. The talented young cast is headed by Giuseppe Altomare as Macbeth, one of Verdi's most profoundly modern anti-heroes - a political animal driven to bloody regicide yet doomed by his very success - with Olha Zhuravel as his obsessively ambitious wife, driven to madness by her own guilt.
