Macbeth

Just call it The Scottish Play—or, in this case, The Scottish Ballet. One of Shakespeare’s most celebrated tragedies, Macbeth carries with it a dark cloud of superstition that permeates it like a fog rolling over the Scottish highlands. Within the theatre world, speaking its name aloud is akin to profanity, as just a single utterance backstage is said to have derailed several productions throughout history, including a lethal, riot-spurning disaster in 1849.

Whether or not there’s any truth to The Curse, the word “Macbeth” certainly holds power within the realm of Shakespeare’s Scotland. Throughout, the title character’s name serves as an incantation portending certain doom, whether hissed by three ominous witches, bellowed by a grieving father, or purred by a determined queen-to-be. Macbeth’s bloody rise to power begins with a mysterious prophecy and rockets to its inevitable conclusion, tackling issues of fate, grief, madness, gender, and power along the way.

In the premiere of this original ballet adaptation, the Scottish King and his cruelly ambitious Lady follow their lust for power while twirling to the choreography of founding Artistic Director Robert Weiss. Adding emotional heft is a score by J. Mark Scearce, played live by the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle. Audiences might recognize Scearce’s style from his composition for Carolina Ballet’s Dracula.
