Sicula iOpera. A documentary portrait of a radical re-make of Verdi’s opera Macbeth.

From the bright lights of some of the world’s most prestigious theatres and festivals, we follow three opera singers on a world tour, then back to their lives at home in South Africa. The film also showcases the powerful, political production. Shakespeare’s story of greed, tyranny and remorse is set in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The film’s director Catherine Henegan traveled with the opera over a period of three years in the role of company manager, which give her a unique opportunity to document the artists involved in this extraordinary theatrical production.
