"A VISUAL DAZZLER FOR THE WILMA'S FIRST SHAKESPEARE!" -The Philadelphia Inquirer

After 31 seasons of groundbreaking theater, the Wilma presents its first-ever production of Shakespeare with an ambitious staging of the Bard’s final great tragedy.  Tempted by the prophecies of three mysterious witches, Macbeth’s ambition to be King of Scotland leads him into a nightmarish world of evil, deceit, and murder.  Monstrous actions run rampant as he and Lady Macbeth lose themselves to unstoppable drives of savagery and political atrocity. Featuring spectacular choreography, original music, and stunning visuals, this classic tale of power and madness promises to be like nothing audiences have ever seen on the Wilma’s stage.

'Otello' at the Opera Company and 'Macbeth' at the Wilma come at a cost. The starting point is money, but beyond that, the productions are demanding.
