Macbeth or Macbetto

Macbeth or Macbetto
Xavier Albertí

If you come across theatre posters around the United Kingdom, and you see announcements for “The Scottish Play”, you should know that this name is a moniker (some say to keep bad luck at bay) for Shakespeare’s Macbeth – a play about the rise to power via stabbing.

Inside every one of us there is a powerful “Macbeth” mechanism. And the motor of this is envy and the possibility of getting higher and higher up the ladder. And the oil for this motor: the person near us through whom we share, cultivate and grow our envy.

Macbeth or Macbetto is a bloody ceremony of crimes and usurpations. It is a theatrical concert for piano, drum, out of tune strings, and peto, onde, si vocé diser, tambem bate un curaçao.
