A classic tragedy, full of ambition and betrayal, superstition and murder. After meeting three witches who prophesy that he will one day become king, Macbeth sets off a chain of chaos throughout Scotland when impatience drives him to kill his friend, kinsman, and king. Now as king, Macbeth struggles to prevent the rest of the witches' predictions from coming to pass as his authority begins to crumble and his wife slowly descends into madness. The fires of rebellion ignite throughout the land, and even the seemingly favorable predictions the witches gave him come to have a double edge.
