Nicknamed “l’opera senza amore” – the opera without love – Macbeth is a bold retelling of Shakespeare’s tragedy, a portrait in music of one of the world’s most power-hungry couples.
A witches’ prophecy and a fierce, consuming ambition lead Macbeth and his wife on a murderous path with the ruthless desire to ascend the throne of Scotland. Verdi’s score bristles with energy and excitement: majestic arias, hair-raising duets and thrilling ensembles. If you enjoyed La traviata last year, you will be rocked to your core by the chilling, emotional experience of this grand opera.
Starring two of Australia’s most prominent Verdi specialists: baritone José Carbό, back with State Opera for the first time since 2007 as Macbeth, and Adelaide born soprano Kate Ladner, who brings her stunning vocal power to the role of Lady Macbeth.
Perth audiences and critics raved about this production directed by Stuart Maunder where Braveheart meets Game of Thrones. Get ready for a wild night at the opera Adelaide, something wicked this way comes…
"This production is masterful and one sure to enthral even inexperienced opera goers, such is its pace, clarity, and luscious music. Do not miss it."
⭐⭐⭐⭐1/2 "Maunder, as always, gets the best out of his cast… and this was another piece of outstanding opera."
"A world-class masterpiece. I hope Her Majesty's Theatre has insurance because the roof was blown off the theatre by the thunderous and hair-raising voices of these exceptionally talented performers."
"The State Opera chorus look and sound sharp and focused. (They) were excellent, not only musically but also in terms of characterisation."
"José Carbό is an articulate but introspective Macbeth, putty in the hands of his ambitious wife. Kate Ladner's Lady Macbeth is seductive in voice and manner... poisoned by her consciousness of guilt."
