The biggest crime, the biggest sin is, repeating the director, David Pountney from his interview on the disc, the unnatural and pervert act of killing human being, which is your guest. It is really worth to pre-watch the interviews of the director and performers before watching this opera.
I give it 5 stars, despite its controversy and many discussions.
Music is great, the conductor Franz Welser-Möst does his job perfectly, Thomas Hampson and Paoletta Marrocu created electricity between general Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, and all supporting roles were also very convincing. Especially interesting is the conception of witches. I watched this disc several times already and this is one of my favorite "Macbeth's"
