Macbeth | Memorial Auditorium | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: April 14-17 2016


Though opera has repeatedly immortalized Macbeth, ballet has only recently approached Shakespeare's bloodiest monarch. Vladimir Vasiliev's 1980 Bolshoi Ballet version improbably rendered the witches three who prophesy Macbeth's rise and fall as Zulu warriors and "lively yaks." In 2013, Nashville Ballet's atmospheric take fused modern and classical techniques, before last month's multimedia treatment by Chicago Repertory Ballet. Now, in his first new evening-length work in eight years, Carolina Ballet artistic director Robert Weiss teams up with frequent collaborator J. Mark Scearce, who has composed new music for Weiss's balletic rendition of the Scottish play. The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle performs in this world premiere in Raleigh; the production comes to DPAC starting April 30. —Byron Woods
