One of the most important texts of world dramaThe tragedy of Macbeth speaks of the isolation of power, the fear of its collapse, and at the same time its ineffectiveness, because power based on power cannot really create anything lasting. Macbeth (Micha Arch) and Lady Macbeth (Asja Kahrimanović) like protagonist their own tragedies create maps of the seas that like echoes from the past map into today’s geopolitical tensions, LGL wrote.
A battle of metal objects associated with powerAccording to the director and the author of the artistic image of the play Matteo Spiazzi is this battle for power”barren and incapable of producing anything, thus like connection between Lady Macbeth and Macbeth“. The battle comes to life on stage like a battle of metal objects, historically often associated with power, often representing its symbol and means of conquest. Hence the subtitle Rusty show. “The landscapes of these objects are created by fairy-tale witches who, like courtesans, accompany the slow browning protagonists and weave a violent picture of the collapse of a family, society, civilization,” is also written in the announcement.
The authors of the adaptation of the text translated by Oton Župančič are Spiazzi and Benjamin Zajc, who also took care of the dramaturgy. The play Macbeth uses waltzes Morgenblätter and Rosas do Sul Johanna Strauss the Younger, Waltz triste Jean Sibelius and an excerpt of Scott Gibbons’ music from the film When the last time I saw my fatherdirected by Chiara Guides.
