Giuseppe Verdi, MACBETH
Greek National Opera |

One of Verdi’s most thrilling operas, Macbeth is the GNO’s first production for 2014 and will be staged at the Athens Concert Hall’s Alexandra Trianti Hall at the beginning of the New Year. Based on the play of the same title by William Shakespeare, the opera offers a rare insight into the psychology of the leading roles, General Macbeth and his wife, two ruthless characters prepared to go to extremes in order to take the throne of Scotland. The powerful and dramatic music evokes the intensity of the characters and the action. The opera will be presented together with the ballet that Verdi composed for the Paris staging of the piece. The direction is by the acclaimed opera director Lorenzo Mariani, who has worked on numerous major productions with leading opera companies in Europe and the United States.

The main roles are performed by: Dimitris Tiliakos, Dimitris Platanias, Tasis Christoyiannopoulos, Dimitra Theodosiou and Tatiana Melnychenko
