On Friday, November 15 at 7:30 p.m. Opera Western Reserve (OWR) will present Verdi’s Macbeth. Based on the famous Shakespearean tragedy, Verdi’s Macbeth follows the rise to power of an increasingly paranoid Scottish general and the bloody prophesies steering his fate. After receiving glimpses of the future, Macbeth embarks on a murderous path to the throne, urged on by his wife’s unscrupulous ambition. Losing himself to delusion and paranoia, Macbeth struggles to escape his destiny.
In the titular role is Michael Young, has performed with OWR as Belcore in Elixir of Love (2015), Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor (2017), and most recently as part of OWR’s Spring Cabaret Tribute Show. English translations will be projected above the stage to assist guests in following the story, as the opera will be sung in Italian.
