Opera North


No. of reviews: 7

This ambitious and imaginative production is blessed with two powerful leads
20 Mar 14 / Nottingham Post
It’s the title character who really steals the show
20 Mar 14 / Impact
“Concept opera” production does Macbeth no favours
10 Mar 14 / Seen and Heard
Modern dress does nothing to dull Verdi’s edge, even if gore levels remain high.
23 Feb 14 / The York Press
Tim Albery's staging of Verdi's first Shakespeare opera returns to Opera North
10 Feb 14 / What's on Stage
Opera North's relocation of Verdi's opera to a 20th-century totalitarian state is bleak and unnerving
10 Feb 14 / The Guardian
Blackly comic, fast-paced Verdi receives a welcome revival
9 Feb 14 / The Arts Desk
