Supported by The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre.

Macbeth, a valiant and honourable Scottish general, receives a prophecy from three “weird sisters” that he will be the next King of Scotland. Apprehensive at first, he eventually succumbs to his wife’s persuasion as well as his own ambition, and becomes king. Holding on tightly to the crown, he destroys his kingdom.

Macbeth is among the four great Shakespeare tragedies. It brings together elements like black magic, murders and political intrigue; it dramatises the battle between the good and evil in the human heart. It also highlights the danger of seeking power for power’s sake.

The themes and characters in Macbeth still resonate after Protected content . We still find Macbeth-and-Lady Macbeth-like characters, going through the similar treacherous journey of the unrighteous usurpation and clinging on to power and finally falling from grace. These characters go from being well-respected heroes to detested zeros.

Audience members are invited to join the discussion during Q&A session.
