Weary and bloodied from a bitter battle two brave soldiers approach a huddle of wizened gypsies. The women predict greatness for one of the men. When he shares the prophecy of Kingship with his ambitious wife, Macbeth sets in motion a terrifying series of events that lead to murder and madness. As the country descends into chaos and bloodshed the paranoid King struggles to hang on to his crown and his sanity.
Here Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy will be reimagined against the backdrop of the Kosovo war. Performed by the talented pupils of Oundle’s third to upper sixth form and directed by Naomi Jones the production promises to remind audiences of Shakespeare’s enduring contemporary resonance.
This concert promises to be a superb mix of vibrant and high quality music making. Featured works include Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet ballet score, reworked by Quentin Thomas to include many of our younger string players alongside the Symphony Orchestra. The Chamber Orchestra will be performing Mozart's Little Symphony.
Performing are the Symphony Orchestra, the Chamber Orchestra, the Wind Orchestra and the Choir.
Directed by Quentin Thomas, Director of Music; Angus Gibbon, Head of Strings and Adele Hudson, Head of Brass.
