Verdi's Macbeth

July 11 - August 22, 2015

In the first-ever Glimmerglass production of Verdi's powerful Shakespearean drama, Artist in Residence Eric Owens makes his role debut as the title character; Melody Moore returns as his scheming wife. 

The Tragedy of Macbeth is one of Western civilization’s most iconic and powerful tales about blind ambition and hubris,” director Anne Bogart said. “William Shakespeare mined the story for its dark and powerful drama, charting the psychological and political effects of evil action." 

The production will be presented in Italian with projected English text.

This production is generously sponsored by Eugene V. and Clare E. Thaw Charitable Trust.
