Verdi's Macbeth

Andrea Mohin/The New York Times

A scene from the Met’s “Macbeth,”
directed by Adrian Noble with
sets and costumes designed by Mark Thompson.
The HD Live opera from the Met on Saturday is Verdi's Macbeth.

I don't know this opera. The reviews below give me a good idea of what I am going to see.

The image from The New York Times is a bit grisly, but then ... Halloween is coming so it is time for me to toughen up.  And this is a good chance to hear some Verdi as well.

I am looking forward to seeing the three witches as (hand)bag ladies dressed in cardigans.

The timing at my local Crowfoot Cineplex is 10:55 am.

A Malevolent consort, utterly in command
