Macbeth

(Macbeth) Adapted by John von Düffel
Bearbeitet von John von Düffel
1F / 1M

Shakespeare’s hellish masterpiece is condensed here to two people and focuses exclusively on the red-hot core of its story. Macbeth and his “Lady” don’t merely dream of the Scottish throne and unlimited power. They turn their plans into gruesome reality until, undone by their own ambition, they fall into the abyss.
«John von Düffel has crystallised the plot into a relationship drama centred on this married couple, cleverly abridging this play and its royal power games and orgiastic murders in a way that reveals the nature of the vicious cycle of madness and violence.» (Die Welt)
