Shakespeare’s darkest and most powerful tragedy tells the story of Macbeth, the brave general who, returning victorious from battle, witnesses a prophecy from three witches that he will one day become King.
Driven by his ambitious wife, Lady Macbeth, the idea of being king grows into an all-consuming desire for power. After murdering the King, Macbeth takes the throne, dispatching all that get in his way. But the witches have another prophecy, one that will end Macbeth’s treacherous rise to power, one that will play out to its bitter and bloody end.
A sharp warning of the infectious and corrosive lure of power, Shakespeare’s Macbeth still reigns supreme after 400 years. To see it onstage is to see our own society played out before us, set in a world we can all relate to.
