Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The Teatro Regio di Parma mounted this 2006 production of Giuseppe Verdi's 1847 opera Macbeth, which the composer, in turn, adapted from the tragedy by William Shakespeare. The cast includes Leo Nucci as the homicidal Scottish general of the title, Sylvie Valayre as Lady Macbeth, and Roberto Iuliano as Macduff. The Compagnia Balletto di Roma accentuates the production, while the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Regio di Parma lend symphonic accompaniment with Bruno Bartoletti conducting. Famed director Liliana Cavani (The Night Porter ) helms for the stage, while Dante Ferretti (Voice of the Moon) designed the sets.
