Always one of the highlights of my operatic year, Blackheath Halls Community Opera offers its bicentenary tribute to Guiseppe Verdi in this visceral production of Macbeth, typified by extraordinary diction from the 70-strong chorus, some fine instrumental solos and some memorable stage tableau, with strong use of the stage - and its red curtain.

This Production is a triumph... If more people could see how much opera matters to Blackheath, claims that it is 'elitist' would be silenced.
