My Rating: 5 Stars
A powerful and fantastic play by William Shakespeare.
In the story of Macbeth, ambition, obsession and lust for power are the main themes. It's also about trying to escape fate and in the end making it happen exactly as it was predicted. Macbeth, the main character, is the villain of this story. For me, I could never consider him a hero since he was only loyal to the king in hopes to get a higher position. After receiving the warning of the three witches of the prophecy that was to fall on him, Macbeth is drawn to a dark plot and fatal ending in an attempt to fulfil his thirst for power and escape death.
Along side Macbeth, there is the main female character, his wife, Lady Macbeth, a powerful and manipulative woman that shares the same ambitious as her husband. In truth, it was her that implements the seed of the plan that would, in the end, condemn her and her husband. She knows no bounds but in the end, it's the only character that shows remorse.
Highly recommend it!
