Folger Shakespeare Library, The World’s Leading Center for Shakespeare Studies
The Folger Shakespeare Library, home to the world's largest Shakespeare collection, brings Macbeth to life with this new full-length, full-cast dramatic recording of its definitive Folger Edition.
Macbeth, one of Shakespeare's most popular plays, is among the most powerful and influential tragedies in the English language. Promised a golden future as ruler of Scotland by three sinister witches, Macbeth murders the king in order to succeed to the throne. Tortured by his conscience and fearful of discovery, he becomes fatally enmeshed in a web of treachery and deceit.
This new full-cast recording - based on the most respected edition of Shakespeare's classic - expertly produced by the Folger Theatre, is perfect for students, teachers, and the everyday listener.

The actors sound constantly out of breath and stumbling, like overly dramatic teenagers or Michael Cera. Not at all fitting for the figures King MacBeth and Banquo. Completely ruins the story hearing their uneven breaths and insecure delivery.
Especially after listening to the Tempest, narrated by Ian McKellen, this audio book sounds completely amateur .
Couldn't make it past the first thirty minutes.
I bought this to teach Macbeth to my 5th grade class. The format did not
allow for finding Acts and Scennes easily at the beginning of class. I was
not allowed to get a refund
