This week the Royal Opera House (ROH) ended its successful run of Verdi’s Macbeth. A terrified and guilt-stricken Lady M., performed by Anna Netrebko, left haunting memories behind including scenes of her sleepwalking and dreaming she was washing blood off her guilty hands. Now the Covent Garden’s backstage has filled its walls with Richard Jones’s 2004 production of Shostakovich’s first and last opera, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk (1934.). From Banquo’s ghost to Boris Ismailov’s ghost it is no coincidence that Shostakovich’s opera presents many parallels between his version of Lady Macbeth and Shakespeare’s own.

☆☆☆☆☆ One can learn many things from @operahollandpk #OHPTraviata stripping an opera of novelty & sensationalism and bringing it back to the text doesn’t render a production boring or unoriginal... when executed well it can do wonders trendfem.com/2018/06/opera-… #OHPYoungArtists
