This is a link to an interesting perspective on ‘Macbeth’ in the Guardian. It comes from an article that previews a number of Macbeth productions that are happening in the spring of 2018, something of interest to fifty years who will he doing the Leaving Cert in 2019.

  1. Rory Kinnear and Anne-Marie Duff star in Rufus Norris’s National Theatre production (previews from 26 February).
  2. Christopher Eccleston and Niamh Cusack are next in line in Polly Findlay’s RSC version (previews from 13 March).
  3. The Royal Opera, meanwhile, revives Verdi’s Macbeth (from 25 March).
  4. This is closely followed by Shostakovich’s satirical update, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk (from 12 April).
  5. For good measure, Kit Monkman has made a fluidly poetic film version, opening in late March, to add to the growing catalogue of movie Macbeths.
