This week The Stratford Festival website will present the third title under their “Social Order and Leadership” theme: Macbeth. Directed by Artistic Director Antoni Cimolino, this chilling production takes you back to the stark reality of the 11th century, when a murderous king clawed his way to power. It has been praised as “a thrilling terror” (Globe and Mail), “a bold and brutal take on the Scottish King’s tragic tale” (Toronto Star), and “a brilliant, terrifying show” that leaves people “gasping in the dark” (Chicago Tribune). Starring Ian Lake in “a galvanizing performance as an unusually young and sexually magnetic Macbeth” (New York Times) and Krystin Pellerin as “a standout Lady Macbeth … at once adorable yet devious” (Postmedia), this is a production that will haunt your dreams and leave you tingling.
ALL HAIL MACBETH!
