Almeida Theatre streams The Tragedy of Macbeth online
James R | On 21, Oct 2021
The Almeida Theatre will stream its production of The Tragedy of Macbeth live online this month.
Yaël Farber directs James McArdle and Saoirse Ronan in the adaptation of Shakespeare’s play – an elemental production about a world in transformation, the shadows in all of us, and one couple’s spine-chilling quest for power.
McArdle plays the title role of Macbeth, following acclaimed performances as Louis in the National Theatre and Broadway production of Angels in America, Peter Gynt, Platonov and James I in The James Plays (National Theatre), and Deacon Mark Burton in HBO’s Mare of Easttown. Ronan (Little Women, Atonement) makes her UK stage debut as Lady Macbeth, after making her Broadway debut as Abigail Williams in The Crucible on Broadway in 2016.
The production runs until 27th November at the Almeida Theatre, but with tickets sold out for all performances, audiences will also have the option to watch from home instead, with several productions playing live online – from 27th to 30th October.
Tickets start from £15 for 27th October and from £25 for 28th to 30th October. Each performance starts at 7pm and runs for approximately 3 hours with an interval included. Tickets are limited to ensure every viewer receives a high-quality stream.
A separate captioned version of the live stream is available on 28th October, and a separate audio-described (in English) version of the live stream is available on 29th October.
A limited number of £5 tickets are available to those aged 25 and under for performances from 27th to 29th October using the promotional code 25UNDER when booking.
To watch the live stream, sign in to the Almeida website with the same account you booked with, and go to “Recordings & Live Streams”. The streams will support casting to TV devices via Chromecast, Google Home and Airplay, or you can connect your computer to your TV with an HDMI cable.
