Following the sellout February success of Das Rheingold at the Regent Theatre, Melbourne Opera is thrilled to be returning to the magnificent Her Majesty’s Theatre for this brand new production.

Featuring a magnificent cast starring Helena Dix (Norma, Roberto Devereux, Lohengrin), Simon Meadows (Das Rheingold), Samuel Sakker (Norma), Eddie Muliaumaseali’i, Adrian Tamburini, Robert Macfarlane, Michael Dimovski, Eleanor Greenwood, and Alex Pokryshevsky. Including the 60-strong Melbourne Opera Chorus.

Greg Hocking and Raymond Lawrence will conduct the acclaimed MO Orchestra and Academy Award winning director Bruce Beresford will bring this exciting masterpiece to life.

Macbeth is a famous vehicle for a star soprano and baritone, is packed with wonderful arias, choruses and magnificent ensembles and was one of Verdi’s greatest early successes. It’s a masterpiece to which he returned later in life and it is his superb later revised version which MO will present.

Principal Sponsor: Lady Potter AC and Dr Alastair Jackson AM.
