Macbeth is the tenth opera from Giuseppe Verdi. Set in four acts with an Italian libretto by Francesco Maria Piave and additions by Andrea Maffei, the opera is based on Shakespeare's play.

The 1847 version of Macbeth was a successful production, and Verdi went on to write Otello in 1887, based on Othello, and Falstaff in 1893, based on The Merry Wives of Windsor.
