I've seen Throne of Blood
, and I think I also saw the Verdi Macbeth
production by Bevilacqua (both from the local library's collection). Maybe not the latter. But is there another Macbeth
opera besides Verdi's? I did some sampling of films supposedly based on Macbeth
when I was thinking about doing a comparison in that thread, you know the one. And one of them was the Kurosawa, one was a straight-up BBC production (or maybe Channel 4) of the Scottish play, while the third was an opera. It was cool, too.
I hope it was the Verdi, and it might have been this 2006 production, but it might have been another. Anyway, I just want to say that the play transforms into an opera quite successfully, I think. Which made me think of something that I was going to write if I did (but I didn't) do the Macbeth
Rematch: "The play itself is almost like an opera without the music."
is doing a better job than I would have done with this marvelous thread. Probably fewer words, too.

I had fun. Thanks for reading!
