Publisher's Summary

William Collins Books and Decca Records are proud to present Argo Classics, a historic catalogue of classic prose and verse read by some of the world’s most renowned voices. Originally released as vinyl records, these expertly remastered stories are now available to download for the first time.

By the pricking of my thumbs,

Something wicked this way comes.

Shakespeare’s darkest psychological thriller.

Three witches tell the Scottish General Macbeth that he will be king of Scotland. Encouraged by his wife, Macbeth kills the king, becomes the new king and kills more people out of paranoia. Civil war erupts to overthrow Macbeth, resulting in more death.

All of the Shakespeare plays within the Argo Classics catalogue are performed by the Marlowe Dramatic Society and Professional Players. The Marlowe was founded in 1907 with a mission to focus on effective delivery of verse, respect the integrity of texts and rescue neglected plays by Shakespeare’s contemporaries and the less performed plays of Shakespeare himself. The Marlowe has performed annually at Cambridge Arts Theatre since its opening in 1936 and continues to produce some of the finest actors of their generations. 

Thurston Dart, professor of music at London University and a fellow of Jesus College Cambridge, directed the music for this production.

The full cast includes: Toby Robertson, Roger Prior, Tony Church, John Barton, Gerald Mosbach, Gary Watson, Derek Jacobi, David Jones, Chris Renard, Terrence Hardiman, Donald Beves, Richard Marquand, John Tracy-Phillips, Michael Bates, Terrence Hardiman, George Rylands, John Arnott, Clive Swift, John Bird, John Kimber, Irene Worth, Freda Dowie, Mrs Shire, Willa Muir, Freda Dowie and Janette Richer.

Derek Jacobi hail!

Derek Jacob's readingbod Macbeth "tomorrow' solliquy gives such a unique vision on the catharsis. in my opinion, Jacobi 's Macbeth is almost resigned to the abject failure of his borrowed royal robes in the instant he leads of his wife's suicide. nbit instead of breaking down in misery like Othello over Desdemona, this Macbeth is numbed, and placid. it's enough to make one remember to never take the works of the Bard at face value: there are multiple cooperative and constructive perspectives!
