The 2019-20 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with Verdi’s Macbeth, a performance taped live on September 25, 2019.

Anna Netrebko and Željko Lučić reunited as Shakespeare’s ruthlessly ambitious Scottish couple, after having won tremendous acclaim for their portrayals at the Met in 2014.

The revival also starred Matthew Polenzani as Macduff and Ildar Abdrazakov as Banquo, with Marco Armiliato on the podium, leading the Met Orchestra and Chorus.

Macbeth will be heard over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 21.
