The relentless ambition and greed of the power-hungry couple is nurtured and guided by the supernatural to its ultimate end. Experience Macbeth as you’ve never seen or heard it before; the dark tragedy conceived by Shakespeare and set to the powerful music of Verdi, performed by Opera in a Box in the chilling and atmospheric tunnels under Bristol Temple Meads Station.
Come face to face with the witches, witness Macbeth’s ascension to the throne, and partake in Lady Macbeth’s banquet to celebrate their successes. But beware what ghosts of the past lurk near.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Deeply immersive experience. The sinister location perfectly captured the claustrophobia and slowly shrinking world as Macbeth and his wife descend from power into ignominy and death. Being among the actors creates a feeling of the story unfolding around you... Opera unlike any other experience, totally unique and captivating".
