The Metropolitan Opera New York presents Mozart's Magic Flute

Saturday September 22nd - Verdi's Macbeth from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

Star soprano Anna Netrebko gives a riveting performance as the malevolent Lady Macbeth, the central character in Verdi's retelling of Shakespeare's tragedy. She is joined by Zeljko Lucic, who brings dramatic intensity and vocal authority to the title role of the honest general driven to murder and deceit by his ambitious wife. Ildebrando D'Arcangelo is Banquo and Yusik Eyvazov is Macduff in this recent production with the Royal Opera House Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Antonio Pappano.
