Screening May 5 and 8 in Nambucca Heads.
Majestic Cinemas will be screening the Opera from Staatsopher Berlin, Macbeth, on Sunday 5 and Wednesday 8 May.
Captured live during a sold-out run at Staatsoper in 2018, Harry Kupfer's smash-hit staging of Giuseppe Verdi's vivid take on Shakespeare's classic features icons Plcido Domingo and Anna Netrebko (in a signature role), led by legendary conductor Daniel Barenboim.
After winning in battle, Commander Macbeth receives a prophesy that he will one day become King of Scotland. Influenced by the whisperings of his wife, he literally stops at nothing to fulfil the prophesy.
But racked by guilt, the Macbeth's soon sink into delusions and become victims of their own thirst for power.
