Monk Parrots (USA) and Gertrude Opera (AU) in association with La MaMa ETC presents a concert performance of “M*cbeth”, an 80-minute English language retelling of Giuseppe Verdi’s four-act Italian opera. Conceived and commissioned by Australian soprano Linda Thompson and re-scored by Austin-based composer Peter Stopschinski for electric guitar, electric violin and amplified orchestra, this production explores gender roles in power dynamics and reimagines Scotland’s most infamous literary figure as a premier homebuilder in a McMansion hell. Conducted by Samuel McCoy, directed by Luke Leonard, and starring twice Grammy nominated baritone John Marcus Bindel in the title role.
M*cbeth is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by LMCC.
