Vermont PBS is a proud media sponsor of Macbeth - Opera Company of Middlebury

Now in its 13th season of presenting full-scale productions in the intimate confines of Town Hall Theater, OCM presents Verdi’s Macbeth with a cast of professional singers directed by Douglas Anderson. The orchestra will be conducted by OCM’s musical director, internationally known conductor Emmanuel Plasson.

“With two of the most challenging roles in opera, you can’t even consider Macbeth unless you have two absolutely riveting singer-actors,” said Douglas Anderson, artistic director of OCM.  “We have them in Rochelle Bard, who sang a searing Violetta in our production of La Traviata two years ago, and Joshua Jeremiah, who starred as Athanael in our production of Thais.”

Macbeth premiered in Florence in 1847 and arrived in New York eleven years later. Though one of Verdi’s earliest works, it has a passionate, melodic score and an unrelieved intensity, and has lately been rediscovered as one of his masterworks.

OCM’s professional singers are cast from a lengthy audition process in New York and Vermont.  Rounding out the cast of Macbeth are Rubin Casas, who will sing the bass role of Banquo, and tenor Alok Kumar, last season’s triumphant Calàf, who will sing Macduff.   Tenor Yi Li will perform Malcolm.

Adopting an Artist is an enjoyable and personal way of supporting OCM. A link is made between you in the audience and the artist on stage or in the orchestra pit. Over the years several donors have formed fast friendships with young singers and musicians. Lend your support by sponsoring a singer or a musician at the level of your choosing.
