Italian baritone Giuseppe Altomare turns in a riveting performance as the titular and tragically flawed Macbeth in this lavish staging of Giuseppe Verdi's first Shakespearean opera, filmed in 2007 at the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris. Soprano Olha Zhuravel portrays the infamous Lady Macbeth, a power-hungry queen who fosters her husband's ambition, urges him to commit murder and ultimately succumbs to her own madness.
