Opera Carolina: Macbeth

Verdi adapted one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies into an equally tragic opera. A cautionary tale about what can happen when someone with political ambitions pursues power for its own sake, the story feels both current and timeless.

Macbeth, a noble Scottish general, gets a prophecy from three witches that he will one day become King of Scotland. Goaded on by his power-hungry wife, he murders the king and assumes the throne. Crazed with guilt and paranoia, Macbeth is forced to commit even more murders to stay one step ahead of suspicion. Lady Macbeth, consumed by her own shame, is slowly driven mad.

Macbeth reminds us: Be careful what you wish for. Not all struggles are worth the price.
