An extraordinary and original stage reading of William Shakespeare’s classic tragedy. In Alessandro Serra’s performance the setting is moved from the Kingdom of Scotland amid the carnival culture and rituals of the inhabitants of the Italian island of Sardinia.

True to the spirit of Elizabethan theatre men are cast in all roles in the performance. The original text is translated into Sardinian dialect whose music and sound start to ring as if coming from other times and out of the depths of human soul. The performance works, with exceptional precision, with the captivating power of gesture, image, voice and adds to them sounds of natural elements.

The performance has been highly praised by Italy’s audience and critics. It has won the prestigious 2017 UBU Award for best performance and the Award of the Association of Italian Theatre Critics. It has been successfully presented at various international forums and won the Golden Laurel for best director at the MESS Festival in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
