Cast:Daniele Scattina, Marzia Tedeschi and Romeo Cirelli.
The decision to reduce this tragedy to just three characters (Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and a Joker) stems from our belief that there is anincreasing need to be focused in the synthesis without loosing the atmosphere of the biggest epic. The scene also is chillingly empty andmarked only by a few elements. In that dark emptiness some presences start to materialize, followe by the sound and by the voices of thewitches that will mark the fate of Macbeth. The tree characters are almost continuously and simultaneously on stage, they havelost theirpeace, they have lost their sleep, the one that Macbeth „killed“, A single fi gure gradually detaches from the choir: Lady Macbeth. She isgiven the task of expessing the tragedy and step her gestures and her emotions increase deeply and result in the madness. The other twocharacters intead sink slowly into an interior monologue, almost silent, modulated by suble fl ashes of light. The words don’t fi nd Macbethanymore. All was an illusion aroused by joyful and sinister voice of the witches: The beautiful is ugly, the battle won is lost.
