Macbeth - Act 4 - Patria Op, Verdi

Muti Conducts Verdi's Macbeth

3:00 PM
Sunday, October 6, 2013

Revering Shakespeare above all other playwrights, Giuseppe Verdi based three operas on the Bard’s works. His electrifying psychodrama Macbeth was the first, a blood-soaked portrayal of ambition and guilt. Riccardo Muti, the “greatest Verdi conductor of our time” (Chicago Tribune), leads the incomparable Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in this dramatic concert.
