Renata Scotto (born 24 February 1934) is an Italian soprano and opera director. Recognized for her sense of style, musicality and as a remarkable singer-actress, Scotto is considered one of the preeminent singers of her generation, specializing in the bel canto repertoire with excursions into the verismo and Verdi repertoires. Since retiring from the stage as a singer in 2002, she has turned successfully into directing opera as well as teaching in Italy and America, along with academic posts at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome and the Juilliard School in New York...
Lyrics & English Translation
Macbeth, you are an ambitious man.
You want to be great, but will you be wicked?
The way to the power is full of crimes,
And plague on him
That begins that way doubting and then goes back.
Come on! Hurry up!
I will fire your cold heart!
I will make you able
To complete the bold undertaking.
The witches promise you
The Scottish throne...
What are you waiting for?
Accept this gift! Ascend it and reign!
Ministers of hell,
Spur mortals to bloodshed!
Enshroud us with thick darkness!
Let the dagger not see the breast it strikes, etc.
Now arise all!
