More Info:

With his MacBeth, Giuseppe Verdi broke with the operatic conventions of the time and created one of his darkest and most abysmal works. Directed by Krzysztof Warlikowski, the timeless drama unfolds in a new interpretation that takes the audience on an intense journey into human abysses. An opera of this kind demands not only outstanding voices but also outstanding actors. "Vladislav Sulimsky is forceful and brutish in the title role, at times truly frightening, always utterly assured." (Financial Times) Asmik Grigorian is giving her debut as Lady MacBeth and performs "with an urgency of expression that needs no further explanation." (Salzburger Nachrichten) "Her singing becomes a victory over expressive resistance." (Frankfurter Allgemeine) "Philippe Jordan celebrated a triumph on the podium of the Wiener Philharmoniker" (Kurier), his "MacBeth crackles with power and electricity, propelled by it's own velocity. The orchestra attacks the score with relish." (Financial Times)"Thrills, spills and impressive vocal stunts" (Financial Times)"Her singing becomes a victory over expressive resistance." (Frankfurter Allgemeine)"A triumph for 'Lady MacBeth' Asmik Grigorian." (Kronen Zeitung)
