Opera North Macbeth on Tour
Date Posted: 03/10/13
English surtitles will offer audience members who don't speak Italian a helping hand when they head to see an upcoming touring version of the opera Macbeth.
Opera North are staging the music-filled piece in several UK venues next year, giving fans of this thrilling art form a brilliant reason to look into hotel breaks.
Inspired by the famous tragedy by Shakespeare about a Scottish king who obtains his position through murder, the opera is the creation of Giuseppe Verdi.
The production will be at the Leeds Grand Theatre from February 7th to 22nd next year, before hitting The Lowry in Salford Quays from March 6th to 8th. It will then head to the Theatre Royal in Newcastle from March 11th to 13th, finally entertaining audiences at Nottingham's Theatre Royal between the 18th and 20th of the month.
Shakespeare's original Macbeth is a much-performed text, and recently Kenneth Branagh was seen playing the title role in a production in Manchester, which featured Doctor Who actress Alex Kingston as the character's wife, Lady Macbeth.
