Fair Assembly presents: The Tragedy of Macbeth
Macbeth, a powerful and trusted Scottish general, receives a prophecy that one day he will be king. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, he murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. Consumed by guilt and paranoia, committing more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, Macbeth quickly becomes a tyrant, brutally striking down anyone in his path.The bloodbath and consequent civil war carry the Macbeths from the height of their power to the depths of madness and ruin.
Fair Assembly returns after a two-year hiatus to present an interdisciplinary approach to a psychologically intimate classic, using live sound, original music, dance, and swordplay to access the feeling and movement of the supernatural. The humanity of this brutal tragedy makes it timelessly relevant: a powerful bond between partners broken by overwhelming circumstances, the revelatory nature of power, and the many ways human beings react to the rise of a tyrant.
