Audiences were offered a glimpse into The Royal Opera's production of Verdi's Macbeth with a livestreamed Insight at 7.30pm on 22 March 2018, which is now available to watch on demand on this page, via YouTube.
The stream was presented by Shakespearian Scholar Jonathan Bate and features Music Director and conductor Antonio Pappano exploring the score and The Royal Opera Chorus with Chorus Director William Spaulding.
Phyllida Lloyd’s production of Verdi's Shakespearean opera is richly hued, shot through with black, red and gold. Lloyd depicts the Macbeths’ childlessness as the dark sadness lurking behind their terrible deeds. The Royal Opera’s production uses Verdi’s 1865 Paris revision of the opera, which includes Lady Macbeth’s riveting aria ‘La luce langue’.
Watch on demand:
