Most of Act III is missing

If Audible can correct, then this version is highly recommended, with Anthony Quayle as Macbeth.

New release-- Act IIII is fixed ... Sooo good

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.
