PlaysOff Broadway Shows

A Stunning Staging

Yukio Ninagawa's adaptation of Macbeth is one of the great works of world theatre. First performed in 1980, it transports the Bard's tale of murderous revenge from medieval Scotland to 16th Century Japan, replacing bedraggled kings and warriors with sword-wielding samurais. Famously gorgeously realised, Ninagawa's Macbeth plays out among cherry tress, while a score that is equal parts Buddhist chanting and Samuel Barber lends the work a haunting, mystical air.

This revival, playing the Lincoln Center as part of a worldwide tour, features Japanese stars Masachika Ichimura as Macbeth and Yuko Tanaka as Lady Macbeth.

The hallmark ingenuity, warmth, and intensity bordering on excess that characterize Arden's style is recapitulated everywhere within the production, from the frankly stupendous singing to the electric choreography.
