Τhe dramatic opera Macbeth (Macbetto) by Giuseppe Verdi, based on William Shakespeare's homonymous drama, consists of four acts with an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave. It premiered on 14 March 1847 at the Teatro della Pergola in Florence. In Macbeth, Verdi surpasses the conventional frames of his time and composes an operatic work of theatrical power and characters that possess extraordinary psychological depth and intensity, whereas with dexterous orchestration he succeeds in dramatically sketching violence, conspiracy and death.

The plot of the opera unfolds in 11th century Scotland and narrates the rising of general Macbeth to the throne of Scotland after he murders king Duncan and general Banquo. Accomplice and instigator of the criminal acts is Macbeth’s wife, Lady Macbeth. In the end, she commits suicide burdened by guilt and he is killed in battle by noble Macduff who defends Malcolm's (Duncan's son) rightful claim to the throne.

Directions: The castle will be found at the far end of Paphos harbour. Allow plenty of travel time and be prepared to show your ticket to the car park stewards.
