Using the complete, unabridged New Cambridge Shakespeare edition, this is an audio version (cassettes and compact disks) of Shakespeare's Macbeth, using a full professional cast, sound effects and accompanying music. The recording is directed by Fiona Shaw, who also plays Lady Macbeth opposite Stephen Dillane's Macbeth. Other members of the cast include Stella Gonet as Lady Macduff and Bill Paterson as the Porter. Shakespeare wrote Macbeth in 1605/1606, after he had completed Hamlet (1601), Othello (1603) and King Lear (1605). The set of three cassettes or CDs is accompanied by notes, a list of sources, and a play synopsis.

Review quote

'These tapes are invaluable not just because of the quality of the diction and presentation but because they are based on the complete text as established by Philip Edwards for the New Cambridge Shakespeare edition of the plays. They may be used in conjunction with the plays or simply listened to for the sheer joy of hearing Shakespeare's wonderful language without having to endure the absurdities of so many modern productions.' Contemporary Review 'Well worth acquiring for any good audio collection.' AVL-Multimedia Information
