Ninagawa Macbeth booking
THE world-famous Ninagawa production of Macbeth, first seen in the UK at the 1985 Edinburgh Festival, returns to the west in the autumn, and stops at Plymouth Theatre Royal on 13th and 14th October.
The production has since become to be recognised as an epoch-making piece and Yukio Ninagawa himself as a word-class director. The celebrated leading actor Masachika Ichimura plays the title role and he is joined by Yuko Tanaka as Lady Macbeth.
Booking opens on Wednesday 1st March for the Plymouth dates, the only ones outside London on the visit.
