Last seen over a decade ago, this Lady Macbeth may have returned with many of the same cast, meticulously revived by Elaine Kidd, but after the watershed of #MeToo its perspective seems altered.
Conductor Antonio Pappano does a great job in delivering Shostakovich’s fantastic score, trombones to the fore.
Richard Jones’s superb production, first seen in 2004 and impeccably rehearsed for this revival by Elaine Kidd, confronts all these complexities squarely.
Antonio Pappano and his players have a superb, if strenuous, night, and rightly earned the most explosive final ovation.
Antonio Pappano’s conducting again weaves together the music’s satire – the on-stage brass bands, the tumescent trombones – with its moonlit beauty, and never lets the tension slacken.
