VIDEO: Folger Theatre Begins 2018/19 Season with MACBETH

Rampant ambition and minds unhinged. Shrieking owls and prophesies foretold. Folger Theatre begins its 2018/19 season with Macbeth, Shakespeare's murderous tragedy seen anew and here, set in London's famous Bedlam asylum for a groundbreaking production integrating period music into a famous variation of the play.

The Restoration-era adaptation by Sir William Davenant, which mesmerized audiences from the re-opening of London theaters in the 1660's until well into the 18th century, blends music performed by Folger Consort and the seminal tragedy of the Scottish king.

Directed by Robert Richmond (Antony and Cleopatra, Othello, Henry V), Macbeth has a limited run of only 24 performances from September 4 through 23, 2018. Tickets are available online at or by calling the Folger Box Office at (202) 544-7077.
