Stage footage and trailer from Macbeth 2011

Macbeth is rewarded with rank and favour by a grateful king.

With each enemy butchered in his master's defence, Macbeth's own desire for the crown grows until, driven to distraction by greed, he ferociously seizes the throne. But, violence breeds violence, and a reign born in blood quickly spirals out of control as Macbeth's actions return to destroy him.

Former RSC Artistic Director Michael Boyd directed the first new production in the transformed Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Jonathan Slinger plays Macbeth following his acclaimed performances as Richard II and Richard III in the award-winning 2006 - 2008 Histories Cycle.
