The Tragedy of Macbeth

  • Website: See below

LibriVox offers two full cast performances of the William Shakespeare play The Tragedy of Macbeth. Each version is a separate production with a different cast.

Murder and madness, witches and war: Librivox presents a recording of Macbeth, perhaps Shakespeare's best known tragedy. Macbeth, a general in King Duncan's army, is given a prophecy by a trio of witches: he himself will become king. Fired by ambition and goaded by his ruthless wife, he murders Duncan and assumes the throne. More killings follow as Macbeth attempts to retain his crown, until he discovers that prophecies are not always what they seem.
