The life of the Tree

Verdi was 33 when, in 1847, he wrote the first draft of Macbeth, presented last week in concert performances by the Royal Opera as part of its Verdi Festival. It was his 10th opera. Roderick Watkins is 33 this year, and The Juniper Tree, a co-production between the Munich Biennale and Almeida Opera, is his first opera. The reason this Macbeth is at Covent Garden is to give us the chance to hear Verdi's first thoughts, rather than the more familiar revision of 1865, by which time Verdi was a mature composer of international renown. Will The Juniper Tree find itself revived in 2015, and if it does, will changing style and Watkins's own maturing talent lead him to the kind of fundamental changes Verdi made to Macbeth?
