"Can such things be,
And overcome us like a summer's cloud,
Without our special wonder?"

How far would you go to achieve your greatest ambition? Grand desires give rise to ghastly deeds in Shakespeare's tale of a brave warrior and his wife who become murderous monarchs. Unfolding in a world haunted by ghosts and supernatural forces, Macbeth is one of the theatre's most fascinating horror stories about betrayal, dangerous desire, and the kind of evil that never sleeps.

Performed in the Civic Plaza, in repertory, as part of Shakespeare on the Plaza.

Co-produced by The Vortex Theare & The City of Albuquerque, Shakespeare on the Plaza is one of the only Shakespeare festivals in the nation that takes place in the urban center of of a major US city. We believe a healthy city has a vibrant center, and we are proud to be a part of the downtown renaissance in Albuquerque.
