Event Description

This March, Chicago Repertory Ballet will revive their highly acclaimed 2016 production William Shakespeare's MACBETH by founder and Artistic Director, Wade Schaaf. CRB's reworking of the Scottish tragedy is a high-tech, stripped down ballet adaptation of Shakespeare's original scheme. MACBETH is a tale of greed, ambition and an insatiable lust for power.

Featuring projections designed by John Pobojewski of THIRST designs, Lighting by Sarah Lackner and costumes designed by Chicago favorite Nathan Rohrer, this ballet pulls you in to a sleek world where political intrigue meets power-hungry egos to deliver all the passion, drama, and nail biting action of any good Shakespearian tragedy!
