Plácido Domingo and James Conlon unite again in a powerful adaptation of Shakespeare's classic thriller. Returning home from battle, a victorious general encounters a coven of witches who predict his future—he will become king of Scotland. Blinded by ambition, and spurred on by his power-hungry wife, Macbeth commits multiple murders to attain and keep the throne. Verdi's score elevates the tragedy and horror through electrifying vocal lines and propulsive energy. Plácido Domingo takes on the title role with Ekaterina Semenchuk as the diabolical Lady Macbeth. Tony Award-winner Darko Tresnjak (director of our 2015 hit The Ghosts of Versailles) creates a striking new production.
