One of Shakespeare's darkest tragedies gets thrillingly re-envisioned in Ernest Bloch's opera Macbeth. Written in 1906, Bloch's version condenses the bloody tale of the murderous Scot's illicit rise to power into 110 minutes of hair-raising music and heart-wrenching emotion. The dashing Nmon Ford sings the role of the show's titular character, bringing Macbeth to life with a riveting blend of dangerous delusion and unchecked ambition.

Additional selections from RNDC’s acclaimed repertoire include:
- Evolution of a Dream, a full-company re-envisioning of one of RNDC’s classic and signature works “Reality of a Dreamer,” created by Co-Artistic Director Emerita Sherry Zunker in 1992.

- Train, choreographed by Robert Battle, Artistic Director for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. This commanding and bold work is an abstract ritual in three parts set to a percussive live recording.
