A Scene from Lady Macbeth

Join us at 1 pm for the Metropolitan Opera's broadcast of Verdi's Macbeth, which was recorded in the fall of 2014. Russian soprano Anna Netrebko sings the crazed Lady Macbeth, alongside Željko Lucic as the Scottish king Macbeth. The Met's revival of Adrian Noble's 2007 production also features Joseph Calleja as Macduff and René Pape as Banquo.

Noble uses modern dress in his version of Verdi's Shakespearean adaptation, reviving the classic tragedy. The Metropolitan Opera's Grammy-winning principal conductor Fabio Luisi conducts Verdi's score.
