Event Details

Scottish heath? Check. Toil, trouble? Double check.

Macbeth, commander of the Scottish army, meets a trio of witches on his way home from work and everything goes downhill from there — taking king and country in a slow descent of ambition, murder and madness. As chilling today as it was 100 years ago, Shakespeare’s haunting and haunted “Scottish play” blooms into fully-realized glory in Giuseppe Verdi’s sumptuously scored adaptation. Punctuated with towering arias from the scheming, unraveling Lady Macbeth and demanding an unbelievable emotional range from Macbeth’s baritone, Verdi’s masterwork is a spine-tingling event that leaves an unforgettable, indelible mark.

Starring Mark Rucker as Macbeth, Jill Gardner* as Lady Macbeth, Cesar Sanchez as Macduff and David Cushing as Banquo. Also featuring Sarah Nordin as Dama di Lady Macbeth, Christopher Holloway as Medicom Domestico, di Macbeth, Tyler Putnam as Sicario, Araldo and Samual Hall as Malcolm.
