Performed in English

Verdi’s MACBETH is a four act opera with an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave,  but performed tonight in English, based on Shakespeare's play of the same name. Written for the Teatro della Pergola in Florence, it was Verdi's tenth opera and premiered on 14 March 1847. Macbeth was the first Shakespeare play that Verdi adapted for the operatic stage. Almost twenty years later, Macbeth was revised and expanded in a French version performed in Paris on 19 April 1865.

The first version of Macbeth was completed during the time which Verdi described as his galley years, which ranged over a period of 16 years, and one which saw the composer produce 22 operas. By the standards of the subject matter of almost all Italian operas during the first fifty years of the 19th century, Macbeth was highly unusual.
