Revival of Macbeth for 2014-15 season

La Cieca is reporting that  the 2014-2015 Met season will include a revival of Verdi’s Macbeth featuring Anna Netrebko with Joseph Calleja and René Pape. However there is no baritone announced. From the looks of it, it may Dimitri Hvorostovsky or Zeljko Lucic. Of course it could also be Simon Keenlyside, George Gagnidze, or Thomas Hampson. So these are only a few options. Tell us who you want to see alongside this stellar cast.
Update: It looks like teh eventual Macbeth will Be Lucic reprising the role he sang at the premiere of the production. What do you link of the Met's casting 


  1. great cast indeed!!! I would choose Hvorostovsky or Keenlyside!

  2. I would choose some other soprano than Netrebko for Lady Macbeth. Ideally Monastyrska...

  3. I have listened to Netrebko's Verdi album which is about 1/3 Macbeth and saw a recording of her in concert in St. Petersburg. The part is made for her.
