Opera Night - Verdi's Macbeth

It is not the last word in sophistication, it sometimes lurches back and forth between breathless, barrel-thumping choruses and highly nuanced and thoughtful character studies, but Macbeth is extraordinarily exciting and testament to the young Verdi's desire to really trying something new. This week's Opera Night has a performance from the Lyon Opera House from winter of last year and features the Lyon Opera Chorus & Orchestra under conductor Kazushi Ono. The soloists include Evez Abdulla, baritone, as Macbeth; Riccardo Zanellato, bass, as Banco (Banquo); and Dmytro Popov, tenor, as Macduff...

Verdi famously maintained he wanted a "she devil" in the role of Lady Macbeth-find out how rising Russian soprano Iano Tamar copes with this lady of pure evil.
