Birnam Wood moves to Power Mac Center Spotlight in Theatre Titas’ production of Shakespeare’s "Macbeth"


Macbeth 2019

Fresh off the heels of their sold-out run of the 50th Anniversary staging of Paul Dumol’s Ang Paglilitis Kay Mang Serapio, Theatre Titas brings Birnam Wood to Power Mac Center Spotlight, Circuit Makati by staging William Shakespeare’s Macbeth in November, prolonging the Halloween season.

Helmed by educator and theatre director Carlos S. Cariño, Theatre Titas’ adaptation of the Scottish play stays true
to the Bard’s rhyme and meter, but accompanies it with music composed by Andy Gruet and movement pieces choreographed by former Philippine Ballet Theatre artist Joanna Foz Castro. This production of Macbeth promises to be kinetic, fast paced, riveting, and palatable to today’s audience; ready to introduce the younger generation to the world of William Shakespeare.

Macbeth follows the rise and fall of Macbeth, a general of the Scottish King Duncan, who is told a prophecy by a coven of witches that he would be the King of Scotland. Fueled by ambition and spurred on by his wife, Macbeth moves to fulfill the witches’ prophecies to claim the throne of Scotland for himself.

Leading this production of Macbeth are Jeremy Domingo and Tarek El Tayech, who will be alternating the titular
role of Thane of Cawdor, Glamis, and King hereafter. The role of Lady Macbeth, the wife of the eponymous hero, will be alternated by Issa Litton and Anne Gauthier Das Neves.

Macbeth has performances from November 9-10, 15-17, 22-23. Tickets are available now for only P1000.00! Get your tickets conveniently and securely from or by downloading the Ticket2Me app from the Apple Store or Google Play.
