He wanted to achieve "something extraordinary", a phrase which sums up his his enthusiasm.In this version, stage director Jaume Plensa will set his entire iconographic universe in motion to create a dark theatrical atmosphere full of demonic energy.

Macbeth listens as the mysterious witches foretell that he will become king of Scotland. When his wife finds out, she persuades him to murder the present king and take his place. The witches' predictions drive Macbeth to treat both friends and rivals with brutality until, alone and furious, he faces the final battle and perishes.
