New Production. Sung in Italian with English titles. Run time approx. 2 hours 45 minutes. Macbeth is a successful warrior - the hero of his king, Duncan, whose enemies he has routed in battle. But seduced by a dark prophecy that foretells the greater things for him, and goaded by his wife, Macbeth becomes consumed by ambition. Having murdered the king and seized power he discovers that, to keep it, more and more blood must be spilt. Caught in a spiral of violence, Macbeth and his lady descend into madness and despair.
