On 13 June, Verdi's Macbeth will be broadcast live from the Royal Opera House to the big screen at FACT. 

All ticket-holders for the current Liverpool Everyman production of Macbeth starring David Morrissey can enjoy a £3 discount off full priced tickets to the live satellite broadcast. 

Verdi's lifelong love affair with Shakespeare first took wing with Macbeth in 1847. The composer thought the play to be "one of the greatest creations of man" and, along with his librettist Piave, set out to make of it "something out of the ordinary" on the operatic stage. Simon Keenlyside and Martina Serafin play the Scottish nobleman and his villainously ambitious wife, who spurs her husband to murder for the sake of his career, and American bass-baritone Raymond Aceto takes the role of Banquo, murder victim and symbol of conscience.

Just bring along your Liverpool Everyman Macbeth ticket to the Box Office to claim your discount!
