Macbeth

A gripping telling of Shakespeare’s classic boasts one of Verdi’s most renowned scores. Experience Macbeth as you’ve never seen it before. Lord Macbeth was a loyal General who had sworn allegiance to the King of Scotland but when a group of witches reveal a prophecy that he will one day be King, he and Lady Macbeth become consumed by greed and their callous actions lead to a never-ending circle of lies.

Cavalleria rusticana (Mascagni) / Pagliacci (Leoncavallo)

Cav & Pag

The classic pairing of these one-act operas, often known as ‘Cav & Pag’, are celebrated as the birth of verismo, a style of music drama, depicting the crude passions of everyday people rather than the exploits of kings, queens and gods. Emotions run high in these two tales that will resonate with you for their powerful raw depictions of everyday life, in all its heartbreaking and beautiful complexities.
