Macbeth – MAMT

Macbeth is the first of the three operas after Shakespeare written by Verdi. In the sanguinary subject the composer found everything that moved and inspired him: big politics, violent human passions and the encounter with fantastical forces of Evil.

Verdi was overwhelmed by the theatrical force of Macbeth and called the shakespearean play one of the greatest creations of mankind. Together with Francesco Maria Piave he wrote the libretto and created a forward-looking work that synthetises drama and music. Verdi set down the complex emotional range of every character, subjecting singing to stage action – and as a result created one of the greatest musical tragedies.

While stage directors continue to transpose the action into contemporary settings, Kama Ginkas immerses us in prehistorical times. The space created by Sergey Barkhin evokes a Martian landscape; together with the director the set designer takes the action of a well-known opera outside the framework of familiar associations and allusions. By virtue of this their production abandons ordinary space for the macrocosm of human existence.
