Opera in Bermuda



Gilbert & Sullivan Society is excited to announce the next season of ‘The Met: Live in HD’ operas in Bermuda (on film) starting Saturday, 10 January 2015.

Verdi’s Macbeth

Adrian Noble’s chilling production of Verdi’s masterful adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy also stars Joseph Calleja as the noble Macduff and René Pape as Banquo. Fabio Luisi conducts.
