Photo Flash: First Look at the Minnesota Opera's Production of MACBETH with Greer Grimsley and Brenda Harris

Minnesota Opera is pleased to announce its first production of 2014. Verdi's dark-hued Macbeth examines the corrosive consequences of tyranny. At the urging of his wife, Macbeth murders the king to claim the crown. His desperate and deadly reign of terror devastates his country and hastens his doom in this masterwork based upon Shakespeare's classic thriller. The Show Premieres Saturday, January 25th, and runs through February 2nd at Ordway, 345 Washington Street, Saint Paul, MN 55102. The show is sung in Italian with English surtitles projected above the stage.

Bass-baritone Greer Grimsley (The Flying Dutchman) makes his long-awaited return as the ambitious and sinister King of Scotland with soprano Brenda Harris (Nabucco) as his scheming wife, Lady Mac- beth. American bass-baritone Alfred Walker (The Magic Flute) returns to Minnesota Opera as Banquo, the one-time ally Macbeth betrays in his lust for power, and tenor Harold Meers (La bohe?me) is Macduff, Lord of Fife and foil to Macbeth. Joel Ivany (Nabucco) directs a new Minnesota Opera production with costumes by Camellia Koo (debut), lighting by Jason Hand (debut) and projections by Sean Nieuwenhuis (debut). Michael Christie conducts the Minnesota Opera Orchestra.

Saturday, January 25, 7:30pm Tuesday, January 28, 7:30pm Thursday, January 30, 7:30pm Saturday, February 01, 8pm Sunday, February 02, 2pm
