MACBETH   

Theater  Royal  by La Monnaie / Teatr Wielki Poznan

Sep-Oct 2016

Giuseppe  Verdi

There is a mystery surrounding Macbeth, a feeling of doubt, tinged with fear and almost superstitious uncertainty.  

Staging Macbeth is precisely trying to make this mystery real, to provoke superstition and using words, music and the visual, to bring the audience to feel its 'uncanny strangeness' and feel the fear to pronouce the cursed name. And that fear and that strangeness is inside us.

This is how we want to stage Macbeth. By clashing reality and fantasy in such a way that we ourselves will doubt.  

Verdi was to insist that his librettist and the performers "serve the poet better than the Maestro". To understand the essence of the play, one must approach Verdi's opera as the composer did himself, by giving primacy to Shakespeare's words.

He made it an 'anti-opera', breaking with the cantabile and love dramaturgy and even excluding the primacy of the tenor.  

 

It is in the word and its psychological and poetic interpretation that we base our reading of Macbeth.

Shakespeare barely touched on political issues, but, for the first time in his work, chose to approach psychological complexity, inner conflicts of the two main characters, revealing their true selves through the outrageous theatricality of witchcraft and fantasy.
