Please join us for "Verdi and Shakespeare: An Encounter of Two Giants of the Theatre" a lecture by John Zaretti, President of the Verdi Opera Theatre of Michigan in the Chrysler Black Box Theater at the Detroit Opera House.

This event is FREE and open to the public with RSVP. Please RSVP by indicating you are "Going."

Verdi was a voracious reader and was always looking for dramatic sources and subjects to mold into operatic form. Shakespeare's tragedy "Macbeth" is set in Scotland, with witches, ghosts, and prophecies playing a prominent role, and where an overwhelming lust for power has disastrous ramifications. "Verdi and Shakespeare: An Encounter of Two Giants of the Theatre" will explore how Verdi shaped the play into an operatic masterpiece.

Michigan Opera Theatre will present Verdi's "Macbeth" April 16-24 at the Detroit Opera House.
