A melodrama in four acts directed by Davide Livermore with scenes by Giò Forma.
Teatro alla Scala - Milano - Italy (2021)
A dystopian, anguished, soul-destroying city is the backdrop for a society where personal humanity is banished and sacrificed to the system of power and profit.
Skylines of overturned skyscrapers, multiplied perspective distortions and labyrinthine visions, metropolitan places and non-places including a tribute to the city of Milan.
The augmented reality – adopted by director Livermore for the first time – makes this adaptation spectacular with enchanted forests, large avenues, an elevator or the sleepwalking scene in which the protagonist sings suspended on a ledge.
“MACBETH”, Melodrama in four acts, book by Francesco Maria Piave, music by Giuseppe Verdi, directed by Davide Livermore, scenes by Giò Forma.
