A ruthlessly ambitious Scottish lord siezes the throne with the help of his scheming wife - and a trio of witches. Anthony Quayle, Robert Hardy, Ian Holm, Stanley Holloway, and Jill Balcon star in an unabridged performance of Shakespeare's Macbeth.

If you want Macbeth, this version is the one to get-- I must have listened to at least 8 or 10 audio renditions of Macbeth, and there always was something that didn't seem right (usually Lady Macbeth and/or the sisters). Not so in this dramatization. Anthony Quayle is excellent but Jill Balcon deserves equal kudos as a superb Lady Macbeth. Really I like everything about the production. The only downside is the incessant drumming in the war scenes. It obscures the dialog & is generally irritating. Regardless, it's a solid 5 star performance.
