On 15 July one of the most famous operas by Giuseppe Verdi – «Macbeth» - will be performed at the Cathedral Square of the Peter and Paul Fortress.
The famous Italian Maestro has repeatedly turned to the Shakespeare’s drama. Due to vivid portrayal of characters, power of musical and dramatic conflict, the «Macbeth» opera measures up to the great literary original.
Organizers of the festival believe that the Cathedral Square within the Peter and Paul fortress and, in particular, one of the walls they have chosen as a kind of backdrop will perfectly match the harsh images created for us by English medieval period, genius play-writer Shakespeare and musical genius of Verdi.

The opera will be performed by the Taurida International Symphony Orchestra. Conductor – People’s Artist of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria Mikhail Golikov. Opera Choir led by Julia Khutoretskaya.
