Verdi was justifiably pleased with 'Macbeth', his tenth opera and his first on a Shakespearean subject. He conducted its triumphant premi?¿re in Florence in 1847, taking thirty calls at the final curtain, and it would long remain his own favourite among his 'early period' operas.

Eighteen years later, at the invitation of the Th?®?ótre Lyrique in Paris, he substantially revised the score, and it is this version (sung in Italian) which has prevailed and is presented on this DVD by the forces of La Fenice, Venice.

Driven to bloody regicide by supernatural prophecies and his wife's obsessive ambition, Macbeth is one of Verdi's most profoundly modern anti-heroes - a political animal doomed by his very success.
