One of Shakespeare's darkest tragedies gets thrillingly re-envisioned in Ernest Bloch's opera Macbeth. Written in 1906, Bloch's version condenses the bloody tale of the murderous Scot's illicit rise to power into 110 minutes of hair-raising music and heart-wrenching emotion. The dashing Nmon Ford sings the role of the show's titular character, bringing Macbeth to life with a riveting blend of dangerous delusion and unchecked ambition. Chicago Opera Theater presents Bloch's Macbeth for the first time in the Windy City, the long overdue local premiere of a rarely seen masterpiece. Learn More
