Ambitious. Violent. Treacherous. Macbeth, incited by witches' prophecies and the promptings of his manipulating wife, sells his soul to be king. Once a great man, he trades honor for power. Doomed by his own deeds, he is killed by a man “not born of a woman.” Swiss-American composer Ernest Bloch’s lavish and highly dramatic 1906 score creates the perfect tone for this bone-chilling thriller.
