Shakespeare's tragic masterpiece provides a heartbreaking glimpse into the human heart, laying bare the "black and deep desires" that are found in even the best of men and women. Set in a world rife with superstition and witchcraft, the tragedy's bloody cycle of corruption and betrayal is set in motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted kinsman and friend. Macbeth achieves the power he believes he deserves, but the price is high. He now must contend with his conscience, his ambitious wife and the influence of the mysterious witches whose prophecies guide him toward his destiny, where he discovers that power achieved by bloodshed can only be maintained by more bloodshed.

Congratulations to the theatre for performing Shakespeare plays. However, this performance was less than satisfactory. In the first half of the play both Anthony and Cleopatra were portrayed as total caricatures. The overall acustics were terrible caused by the U-shape of the theatre and the poor enunciation of the Shakespearean language. The patrons next to me complained that they had not been able to follow the plot in the previous Shakespeare play at this theatre, nor did they catch more than half of the lines now. I had the same problem. The costume were unfortunate and the fighting scenes should be rethought. Overall, it was disappointing. G.H.
