Macbeth The Musical
Macbeth the Musical is an adaptation of William Shakepeare's Macbeth, composed by Laura Nobili. Set in Scotland, Macbeth, a noble Thane, learns that his destiny is to become King. With the encouragement of his wife, Macbeth's ambition overshadows his conscience, and he commits the cruel assassination of King Duncan. Instantly, Macbeth regrets his actions, and suddenly he becomes riddled with guilt. The story follows Macbeth and his wife Lady Macbeth as they navigate the river of blood and sea of remorse caused by their dreadful deed. Nobili's music decorates this thought-provoking tale, and provides greater depth to the emotions of Macbeth and his counterparts.
