MACBETH UNDERWORLD - Accentus English version

MACBETH UNDERWORLD

Program

Pascal Dusapin
Macbeth

Pascal Dusapin signs his latest creation: an opera inspired by Shakespeare. With librettist Frédéric Boyer, he puts the infernal Macbeths – Thane and Lady – at the heart of his score, with a strong focus on their devouring guilt. Who better to explore these darker regions of the human soul than the prodigious young producer Thomas Jolly, very much at home in Shakespeare’s world? A premiere marked by its rich orchestration and choral sections scored for 16 female voices.
