The first genuine masterpiece of Verdi’s career, and the first of his three Shakespearean operas, Macbeth is a political potboiler full of witches, ghosts, murders, mayhem, and madness. Verdi has created a stunning musical portrait of opera’s most power-hungry couple that bristles with doom and crackles with an unforgettable score. Starring the legendary baritone Lester Lynch as Macbeth and Jill Gardner (MDLO’s stunning Minnie in La Fanciulla del West at Strathmore) as the fiendish Lady Macbeth. The all-star supporting cast includes MDLO favorites Andrea Silvestrelli as Banco and Yi Li as Macduff. 

MDLO’s presentation at Strathmore puts the MDLO Orchestra & Chorus center stage, while dramatic lighting, captivating projections, and enhanced visual supervision by David Gately takes the audience directly to Macbeth’s castle for an unforgettable performance, conducted by Joseph Colaneri.
