Conservatory Performs 'Macbeth' Nov. 16-20
Macbeth

The Conservatory of Theatre Arts in Webster University's Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts presents Shakespeare's "Macbeth" Nov. 16-20 on the Browning Mainstage Theatre of the Loretto-Hilton Center on Webster's home campus in Webster Groves.

After his glorious victory in a civil war, Scottish general Macbeth encounters three ominous witches. They prophesize his magnificent rise to power, but it is not through noble means. His path involves murder, deceit, and ruthless pursuit of power.

All the while his wife, Lady Macbeth, pushes for more, and the body count rises. The infamous Scottish play is one of magical fantasy and tragedy that is considered by many to be Shakespeare’s darkest work. It begs the question: Is there a limit to human ambition?
