Program notes

Rediscover Verdi's Macbeth in the company of two exceptional, iconoclastic artists: stage director Dmitri Tcherniakov and maestro Teodor Currentzis! There are no witches to be found in this production at the Paris Opera, but there is a deliciously icy and claustrophobic atmosphere which—coupled with a multimedia installation displaying satellite images of Earth—adds to the uncanny sensation of losing one's bearings.

Verdi's immortal score is interpreted to perfection by the esteemed Paris Opera Orchestra, while the stately costumes and minimalist set design craft a starkly realistic world in which the soloists let their talents unfold, including the dynamic Dimitris Tiliakos in the title role and the legendary Violeta Urmana as Lady Macbeth, coursing ineluctably toward their tragic ends in this grandiose and moving production.
