Macbeth

Following the sell-out success of Wagner’s epic Das Rheingold at The Regent in February, Melbourne Opera will stage an inspired new production of Giuseppe Verdi’s thrilling Macbeth at Her Majesty’s Theatre from 18 May.

In an Australian theatre first, the final performance of Macbeth on 26 May will be broadcast via LIVE VR to anyone with Virtual Reality headsets, giving them the closest possible experience to seeing the production in person.

Directed by legendary film and opera director Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy, Ladies in Black), Macbeth stars gifted baritone Simon Meadows as Macbeth, who gave the performance of the production as the slimy Alberich inDas Rheingold, and international opera sensation Helena Dix as Lady Macbeth, who previously shone in Norma, Roberto Devereux and Lohengrin for Melbourne Opera.
