Popis In my paper I present the results of analysis of various productions of Verdi’s operas Macbeth and Otello. Special attention is given to scenography of the productions as an evidence of key audio-visual metaphors (see e.g. Fahlenbrach 2010; 2016) incorporated in the directors’ concept. I focus on particular metaphors included in Shakespeare’s play that enter the stage via Verdi’s opera. Scenography – which I understand both as visual and audial means of expression – reflects the guidance of human senses for the purpose of emphasising and expressing the key concepts of Shakespeare’s and Verdi’s work. I analyse dynamics / kinetics of scenography which is used to guide viewer’s senses through appeal to concepts of evil, and good.
