Review from David B.

The Washington National Opera is a national treasure. We have world-class singers and quality productions right here in DC. Metropolitan - move over! Macbeth is one of my favorite operas and TWNO did it up proud. Then Goldstar makes it affordable...continued

Review from Kasha Webster

Not exactly as I expected, they used these screen to project stylized images and the costumes were very monochromatic. The witches and the new perspective were worth it if you are a Shakespeare fan. Music/singing was beautiful.

Description

Libretto by Francesca Maria Piave

Sung in Italian with English supertitles

You know the story. Well, Verdi’s music matches its chilling power. And when Lady Macbeth risks everything—vocally and emotionally—in her great sleepwalking scene, it’s clear that Shakespeare and Verdi were made for each other.

Part of the 2007 citywide Shakespeare in Washington festival.
