The first performance of Verdi's
Macbeth took place in Florence in 1847. Later, Verdi revised it for performances at the Theatre Lyrique in Paris, and that version is the one usually heard nowadays. This live relay provides a chance to hear Verdi's opera as it was originally intended. It is sung in Italian, and introduced by Piers Burton-Page and Michael Oliver , who has described
Macbeth as "Verdi's first copper-bottomed masterpiece".
