Macbeth cast 2016

Ambition can get bloody.
Joining the worldwide celebration of Shakespeare in 2016, New Orleans Opera is excited to present one of Verdi’s most popular early masterpieces, Macbeth. The story, described by the composer as “one of mankind’s greatest creations,” is a classic thriller of power, greed, and the destructive costs of tyrannical ambition. Set to Verdi’s gripping and ferocious music, Macbeth is a spellbinding  opera with musical fireworks and stunning drama.
