About

Legendary Performances Series

Macbeth signifies the beginning of Verdi's life-long preoccupation with William Shakespeare. Aware of the great musical, as well as literary challenge, Verdi wrote the scenario himself and essentially concentrated the piece on three main protagonists: Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and the prophecy of the witches.

During the first performance on 14 March 1847 in Florence the audience reacted with great displeasure. The piece only gradually established itself in the world of opera.

Luca Ronconi's new production of Verdi's early masterpiece, which was first performed in June 1987 at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin, was received in Germany and around the world with great praise.
