"Look like th’ innocent flower,
But be the serpent under ’t."

When three witches deliver a prophecy in three parts to General Macbeth, he faces a choice: Should he let destiny take its course or conspire with his wife to pursue fortune’s favor on his own? But what’s done cannot be undone, and his decision sets off a scorching, action-packed descent into darkness. Fates and fantasies collide in Shakespeare’s sexy and spellbinding tragedy.

Since 1958, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival has delighted audiences with professional theatre on the CU Boulder campus. All productions will occur in the comfortable indoor Roe Green Theatre this season.
