William Shakespeare

Macbeth

 

How ruthless must one be to achieve one’s goals? The prophecy of the three witches is unquestionable: Macbeth is determined to become King of Scotland. The once-faithful Lord turns into a murderer and ascends the Scottish throne to rule in tyranny. To obtain his alleged destiny, he will stop at nothing, which may seal his own doom...

Kicking off the season with this play, Shakespeare’s haunting classic becomes a timeless parable about mankind’s lust for power, ambition and the penalties of guilt. Hold on to your seats: Something wicked this way comes...
