E.K.M. will enjoy some music making in September when he revs up his cello and joins the orchestra at Chicago Opera Theater for Macbeth, composed by Ernest Bloch. This powerful opera follows the torments which Macbeth and his Lady experience as they fall prey to a spiral of ambition and murder. Doomed by his own guilt, Macbeth is slain by a man "not born of a woman." Swiss-American composer Bloch invests Shakespeare’s original text with an emotional, hair-raising score of tremendous impact. From the moment the curtain rises, this 110-minute non-stop thriller captures the dark and bloody world where ambition and revenge run rampant!
