When Macbeth premiered in 2016, it was one of the most anticipated ballets ever created by Robert Weiss. Featuring brilliant choreography, fascinating sets & costumes and an incredibly powerful score by J. Mark Scearce (Dracula, Love in the Times of the Day), Macbeth weaves a tale of love, power, lust and greed.
