[English Surtitles] Macbeth by Toneelgroep AmsterdamTheater / Amsterdam
22 November 2012, 8pm
Macbeth is Shakespeare’s shortest and bloodiest tragedy. The theatre performance tells the story of the brave Scottish general Macbeth, who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become the King of Scotland.
Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the throne for himself. His reign is racked with guilt and paranoia, and he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler as he is forced to commit murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion.
The bloodbath swiftly takes Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into realms of arrogance, madness and death. Macbeth is partially based on the true story of the Scottish Macbeth, who took the throne after killing King Duncan I.
The performance is directed by Johan Simons and performed by the Toneelgroep Amsterdam with English surtitles.
