This chilling production of Macbeth takes you back to the stark reality of the 11th century, when the murderous king clawed his way to power. It’s a love story soaked in blood – one in which a couple destroy themselves, each for the sake of the other.

Macbeth, Thane of Glamis and a general in the army of his kinsman, King Duncan of Scotland, has played a decisive role in defeating a Norwegian invasion abetted by treasonous Scots. Macbeth has personally slain Macdonwald, one of the Scottish rebels, and defeated a renewed assault by the King of Norway and another rebel, the Thane of Cawdor, earning himself honour, glory and the gratitude of his king. But on their way back from the battlefield, the victorious Macbeth and his comrade Banquo encounter three mysterious “weird sisters,” who address Macbeth as Thane of Cawdor and foretell that one day he will become king. When Duncan subsequently rewards Macbeth with the executed Cawdor’s title, Macbeth begins to contemplate fulfilling the second part of the sisters’ prophecy by taking his destiny into his own murderous hands.
