“An intensely musical performance by Simon Keenlyside in the title role and a deeply considered production by Phyllida Lloyd, each of them attuned to the sound and the sense of Verdi’s music, put this Macbeth at the top of the DVD competition for this tricky opera.” - Opera News

Giuseppe Verdi’s Macbeth

Macbeth, which premiered at the Teatro della Pergola in Florence in 1847, was the first of Verdi’s operas based on Shakespeare. (The other two are his final masterpieces Otello and Falstaff.) The composer was only 33 years old when he decided to set the play—which he called “one of the greatest creations of man”—to music. Today, Macbeth is considered the most important of his early operas.
