Macbeth returns to the stage

[Chicago, IL - February 6th—] This March Chicago Repertory Ballet revives our highly acclaimed 2016 production of William Shakespeare’s MACBETH. Founder & Artistic Director, Wade Schaaf, created a dramatic reworking of the Scottish tragedy. This high-tech and streamlined ballet adaptation promises to be a feast for the senses.

MACBETH is a tale of greed, ambition, and an insatiable lust for power.

Featuring projections designed by John Pobojewski of THIRST designs, lighting by Sarah Lackner, and costumes designed by Chicago favorite Nathan Rohrer, this ballet pulls you into a sleek world where political intrigue meets power-hungry egos—Wade Schaaf’s MACBETH delivers all the passion, drama, and nail biting action of any good Shakespearean tragedy!
