"Something wicked this way comes," predicted the witches in "Macbeth" just before Macbeth arrived.
Something spectacular this way comes, as well.
Carolina Ballet presents one of Shakespeare's best known and most dramatic plays, "Macbeth," April 14-17 at Raleigh Memorial Auditorium and April 30-May 1 at the Durham Performing Arts Center. Its first world premiere for a full-length story ballet since "Sleeping Beauty" in 2010, Carolina Ballet offers this presentation of "Macbeth" as part of its Spring Shakespeare Festival, a season of drama in tribute to William Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death. There has only been one other known "Macbeth" ballet, which was presented by the Bolshoi Ballet in 1980.
Carolina Ballet’s show is a brand new production, featuring an entirely original Act I written by Carolina Ballet Artistic Direct Robert Weiss. J. Mark Scearce, who composed Carolina Ballet's "Dracula" score, also composed the score for this tale of prophesy, murder and lust. Music will be performed by the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle.
