The Sunday Opera: Giuseppe Verdi's "Macbeth" from Britain's Royal Opera House
We’re continuing with productions from England’s Royal Opera House at Covent Garden on this week’s Sunday Opera (7/15 3:00 p.m.) with their production of Giuseppe Verdi’s “Macbeth.” Shakespeare’s tragic tale of unbridled ambition features Zeljko Lucic as Macbeth, Anna Netrebko as the tortured Lady Macbeth, Ildebrando D’Arcangelo as Banquo, Konu Kim as Malcolm, and Yusif Eyvazov as Macduff with Antonio Pappano leading the Orchestra and Chorus of the Royal Opera House.
After the opera, join Michael Kownacky for more music on a “Scottish” theme from Felix Mendelssohn-Barthody and his Symphony No. 3 in A minor (the “Scottish”) as well as the Scottish Fantasy, Op. 46 of Max Bruch for an atmospheric afternoon of enjoyable orchestral music.
