          Sinopsis
          Macbeth is a tragedy by William Shakespeare; it is thought to have been first performed in 1606. It dramatises the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. Of all the plays that Shakespeare wrote during the reign of James I, who was patron of Shakespeare's acting company, Macbeth most clearly reflects the playwright's relationship with his sovereign. It was first published in the Folio of 1623, possibly from a prompt book, and is his shortest tragedy. A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death. Shakespeare's source for the story is the account of Macbeth, King of Scotland; Macduff; and Duncan in Holinshed's Chronicles (1587), a history of England, Scotland, and Ireland familiar to Shakespeare and his contemporaries, although the events in the play differ extensively from the history of the real Macbeth. The events of the tragedy are usually associated with the execution of Henry Garnet for complicity in the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. In the backstage world of theatre, some believe that the play is cursed, and will not mention its title aloud, referring to it instead as "The Scottish Play". Over the course of many centuries, the play has attracted some of the most renowned actors to the roles of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. It has been adapted to film, television, opera, novels, comics, and other media.
          Acerca de William Shakespeare

          William Shakespeare fue un dramaturgo y poeta inglés, considerado uno de los más grandes escritores de todos los tiempos. Hijo de un comerciante de lanas, se casó muy joven con una mujer mayor que él, Anne Hathaway.  Se trasladó a Londres, donde adquirió fama y popularidad en su trabajo; primero bajo la protección del conde de Southampton, y más adelante en la compañía de teatro de la que él mismo fue copropietario, Lord Chamberlain's Men, que más  tarde se llamó King's Men, cuando Jacobo I la tomó bajo su mecenazgo. Su obra es un compendio de los sentimientos, el dolor y las ambiciones del alma humana, donde destaca la fantasía y el sentido poético de sus comedias, y el detalle realista y el tratamiento de los personajes en sus grandes tragedias. De entre sus títulos destacan Hamlet, Romeo y Julieta, Otelo, El rey Lear, El sueño de una noche de verano, Antonio y Cleopatra, Julio César y La tempestad.Shakespeare ocupa una posición única en el mundo, pues sus obras siguen siendo leídas e interpretadas en todo el mundo.
