Notes & Reviews:
Macbeth undoubtedly marked a turning point in Verdi's operatic writing, i.e., the foregrounding of the characters' introspective, psychological aspects. This DVD captures the production staged at Novara's Teatro Coccia during the 2013-14 season, with thriller/horror filmmaker Dario Argento tackling opera direction for the first time. One could only expect a direction in line with his films, and from that point of view this Macbeth meets expectations, with the visualization of the opera's bloody, indeed gory scenes matching the dark, brutal character of Shakespeare work.Notes & Reviews:
