Macbeth: “A good man” played by Kenneth Branagh

Kenneth Branagh‘s name has been mentioned several times in this blog and this will not be the last, that’s for sure. I feel a deep admiration for his work. One of my dreams, not yet completed, is to see him in the theater. Last year, Sir Kenneth Branagh played masterfully on stage to Shakespeare’s Macbeth. I had no chance to see it so I will refer to it stealing the words of some lucky yes they could.

The Manchester International Festival itself said:

His interpretation of Macbeth as good man declining into desolation and despair was exhilarating. Audiences sat inches from the action as sparks actually flew in the heat of battle.

New York Times:

Fast, furious and unstoppable, time keeps rushing forward in this Macbeth, knocking the breath out of everyone, audience included.

Blood, mud, fire and rain filled the space in this St. Peter’s in Ancoats, a place never before used as a theater.

Here I leave the trailer of this production. A little piece of glory for those who could not live the emotion of being face to face with these great actors and actresses.
