From today's Corriere della Sera, that devotes a half page, above the fold, to Riccardo Muti's and Peter Stein's "Macbeth" in Salzburg, a "warlike Macbeth", writes the Milanese newspaper, "that makes one smell the stench of death".
From the review (not yet online, wait until tomorrow when the paper's content becomes available for free on Corriere's website):
"His [Muti's] interpretation is not only astonishing in its technique -- a thousand details are carefully refined -- but it's modern, dark, full of tragedy and less propulsive (on average, the tempi are now slower) but much more biting and gloomy than in the past. A 'gothic' interpretation, truly gripping."
La Stampa praises Muti's ability to "make one understand how Lady Macbeth manages to keep everything under control in an environment so irrational and terrifying, in one of the many unforgettable moments of the night".
