Macbeth [translation by Migdalia Cruz]
July 29 – August 1
After a mysterious encounter with 3 witches, Macbeth is driven to desperate acts in order to fulfill the prophecy they made him. Spurred on by his Wife, Macbeth’s story unfolds in this open air performance which will take place all around the audience. This is dark and dramatic retelling of a Shakespearean classic, in a wonderful modern verse translation by Migdalia Cruz and as you’ve never seen it before. Come dressed for the weather and prepared to be emerged in the magic, wonder and want of this incredible story.
