Talk about drama! Shakespeare’s classic Macbeth meets opera this autumn at the Chicago Opera Theater. Penned in 1906 by a 24-year-old Swiss-American writer, Shakespeare’s original tale of murder and the quest for power lends itself beautifully to a passionate musical score. Follow Macbeth as he plots and ploys to murder King Duncan and ascend to the Scottish throne with Lady Macbeth — his conniving wife — by his side. Ernest Bloch’s rich melodies accompany the bloody plot chronicling Macbeth’s inevitable descent into madness.
