Macbeth” is a story of temptation, ambition and seduction. At the start of the opera, Macbeth is a good and heroic leader who has just won a great battle. Nevertheless, he fails to notice the triple enemy fighting for his heart and mind--the chorus if Witches, his wife, and his own desire for power and success. Macbeth begins his bloody rise to power, including the murder of the Scottish king, Duncan, and the guilt-ridden pathology of evil deeds generating still more evil deeds. Eventually, his friends and allies become aware of the evil breaking into his soul and fight to stop him. In the end, Macbeth is killed.
