LA Opera: Verdi’s “Macbeth” (cont.)

September 17-October 16, 2016

“Music director James Conlon has conducted more productions of Macbeth than any other opera, and his command and relish of Verdi’s lush, uncommonly dramatic music was palpable. Driving the brilliant musicians at a gallop, Conlon embraced the drama of Verdi’s score while masterfully accommodating the singers when necessary.”

“The chorus members, beyond reproach, are persuasive and captivating. As for James Conlon, always alert and involved, vigilant and attentive to the slightest inflections of his soloists, from start to finish, he is the royal absolute master of this production.”
