A tragedy by William Shakespeare, “Macbeth” tells the story of Scottish general Macbeth, who, following a prophecy by a trio of witches, is consumed by ambition and, prompted by his wife, murders the king and assumes the throne. As the play progresses, guilt and paranoia result in more murders, madness and death.
