Macbeth (DOB)

MACBETHDOB

Robert Carsen sets his Macbeth vaguely in a communist dictatorship. Or maybe then again maybe it’s fascist. In any event, it’s not anyplace you’d like to go on vacation. The concrete sets and harsh lighting create a claustrophobic effect despite the dimensions of the DOB stage (this is, in fact, the second largest house in Germany). Carsen loves theatrical flourishes and he provides several memorable ones here, including a tinted oversize poster of the Thane of Cawdor in marshall attire, a blood-splattered wall and black-and-white photographs of presumable missing or dead persons that the lamenting chorus hold aloft in imitation of a Christian Boltanski installation. It may be part of the idea, but the austere staging primarily leaves one cold.

The fall 2013 performances will be conducted by the Paolo Arrivabene, a frequent guest and dependable Verdi maestro. The cast is a solid mix of DOB ensemble members and guest singers, including Thomas Johannes Mayer, Albert Pesendorfer, Marianne Cornetti and Yosep Kang.
