A love so ferocious in its desires that it destroys everything around it, Macbeth is Shakespeare’s pitch-black tragedy of ambition with no balance. It is a world in which the state of emergency is the norm and not the exception. Confronted on a heath after a heroic action, a Scottish nobleman is faced with a choice disguised as inevitable fate and begins a murderous journey to an isolated end. Set in a New Orleans’ theatre house of the 1830s, this production of Macbeth is presented in a world of spiritualism, mesmerism, tarot decks, and unquenched ache.
