An evil prophecy to be king drives Macbeth and his wife to make the vision a reality. A tortuous series of events escalates into one of the most notorious good man driven bad stories. This Macbeth is a modern translated version created by Migdalia Cruz.
Macbeth – The Tragedy of Macbeth is a tragedy by William Shakespeare; it is thought to have been first performed in 1606. It dramatizes the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. Of all the plays that Shakespeare wrote during the reign of James I, who was patron of Shakespeare’s acting company, Macbeth most clearly reflects the playwright’s relationship with his sovereign. It was first published in the Folio of 1623, possibly from a prompt book, and is Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy.
