Driven by his desire to rule, Macbeth does whatever it takes to become king. When three witches reveal their prophecy on the heath, a savage darkness consumes the hearts of the treacherous warrior and his wife.


Corruption and an insatiable greed for power lead to death and destruction in Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy.
