"This recording of Verdi's Macbeth marks the completion of the Peter Moores Foundation's remarkable Opera in English series, established in 1995 with the aim of making opera available to wider audiences by presenting the highest quality opera performances in English.

"Here a translation by Jeremy Sams is sung by an all-star cast including Simon Keenlyside as Macbeth and Latonia Moore as Lady Macbeth. Edward Gardner conducts the English National Opera Orchestra.

"In 1865, eighteen years after its triumphant premiere in Florence, Verdi was asked to revisit the score for a Paris revival. This revised version forms the basis of the present recording which also includes additions from the original score [of 1847]."--Crotchet Classical Music

Rupert Christiansen of the Telegraph gives four stars out of five to the recording.

A blogger reports on August 20, 2013, that Chandos is recording Verdi's Macbeth. I imagine that the recording will be in English.

Chandos Records are recording Verdi's Macbeth at Blackheath Halls at the moment, with Edward Gardner OBE conducting the English National Opera Orchestra.

The soloists are
Latonia Moore -- Lady Macbeth
Simon Keenlyside -- Macbeth
Gwyn Hughes Jones -- Macduff
Brindley Sherratt -- Banquo
Ben Johnson -- Malcolm
Elizabeth Llewellyn -- Lady Macbeth's Lady in Waiting.
