Synopsis

Adapting William Shakespeare’s infamous tragedy for the operatic stage, director Phyllida Lloyd provides a brutal take on the classic tale of murder most foul.  The warrior Macbeth fights on the side of the King of Scotland – but when a coven of witches prophesy that he shall become king himself, a ruthless ambition drives Macbeth and his devious wife to horrific acts. Murder and magic makes Macbeth king, and intrigue and butchery soon become the hallmarks of his brief, doomed reign.
