Meet the Players: Felicity Lyon

In our Macbeth “Meet the Players” series, we’re interviewing the cast of our upcoming production. Get to know all the players you’ll see on stage in our ballet adaptation of ‘The Scottish Play’ March 29, 30 and 31 at the Athenaeum Theatre.


CRB: How long have you been with the company and what role do you play in Macbeth?

Felicity: “This is my first season with the company. I play Banquo.”

CRB: What are your thoughts on the ballet of Macbeth?

Felicity: “This ballet is such an exciting adaptation of the well-known story. The intensely emotional subject matter: ambition, greed, power, betrayal, guilt- lends itself beautifully to movement, and Wade’s choreography and contemporary staging breathes new life into a classic.”

CRB: What are your thoughts about playing Banquo in the show?

Felicity: “Working on Macbeth has been a treat for me in so many ways. Having the opportunity to dance a traditionally “male” role has given me a chance to literally and figuratively flex some new muscles, and exploring the tragic emotional journey of Banquo throughout the ballet has been both challenging and incredibly rewarding.”

See Felicity and the rest of this incredible cast of performers on March 29, 30 and 31st at The Athenaeum Theatre. Get your tickets today!
