Power and drama.

A great admirer of Shakespeare, Verdi adapted several of his plays for opera (Otello and Falstaff come to mind). However, Macbeth was the first work by the famous English playwright that the composer was to set to music.
In this work we find a new side to Verdi. He doesn't hesitate to emphasize the empathy and expression of his characters over and above the beauty of the music, so as to best serve the drama.
This does not detract from the impressive vocal technique that singers must demonstrate to play the characters as accurately as possible and to captivate the audience.
