Overview
"Macbeth: The DVD Edition" includes everything you've come to expect from the Folger Shakespeare Library editions of Shakespeare's plays -- facing-page explanatory notes, scene-by-scene plot summaries, illustrations from the Folger archives -- combined here with a bonus DVD of a performance of "Macbeth" recorded before a rapt audience in the Folger's intimate Elizabethan Theatre. Conceived and directed by Teller (of Penn & Teller) and Aaron Posner, this acclaimed production showcases the inventive magic of Teller, who, with Posner, contributes a new foreword to this edition, writing about their vision of the play as a "supernatural horror thriller." "Macbeth: The DVD Edition" is the perfect volume for those encountering the play for the first time and for those finding brilliant new insights into a classic.
THIS DVD EDITION INCLUDES:
DVD of the 2008 Folger Theatre/Two River Theater Company production -- with over 50 minutes of special features, including interviews with the directors, actors, designers, and scholars
Foreword by directors Teller and Aaron Posner on the staging of "Macbeth"
Freshly edited text based on the 1623 First Folio
Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play
A key to the play's famous lines and phrases
An introduction to reading Shakespeare's language in "Macbeth"
Illustrations from the Folger Shakespeare Library's vast holdings of rare books
An essay by Susan Snyder that provides a modern perspective on the play"
