Giuseppe Verdi (1813–1901) dominated the Italian opera scene after the eras of Bellini, Donizetti and Rossini. His works are frequently performed in opera houses throughout the world and are at the core of today’s repertory.

Macbeth was the first Shakespeare play that Verdi adapted for the operatic stage. The libretto is by Francesco Maria Piave (1810–1876), Verdi’s principal librettist of the period, with additions by Andrea Maffei (1798–1885), a cosmopolitan poet and translator who introduced the work of many great foreign writers to Italians.
