Description

Folger Shakespeare Library, The World’s Leading Center for Shakespeare Studies

The Folger Shakespeare Library, home to the world's largest Shakespeare collection, brings Macbeth to life with this new full-length, full-cast dramatic recording of its definitive Folger Edition.

Macbeth, one of Shakespeare's most popular plays, is among the most powerful and influential tragedies in the English language. Promised a golden future as ruler of Scotland by three sinister witches, Macbeth murders the king in order to succeed to the throne. Tortured by his conscience and fearful of discovery, he becomes fatally enmeshed in a web of treachery and deceit.

This new full-cast recording - based on the most respected edition of Shakespeare's classic - expertly produced by the Folger Theatre, is perfect for students, teachers, and the everyday listener.

Better than expected! Helpful in the classroom.

Reading some of these reviews made me wary, but I needed quick access to an audio version of Macbeth so I purchased it anyway. I am glad I did! One person has commented that the book is difficult to navigate, but actually, each section of the audiobook is a different scene in the play. Yes, they are labeled as "Section One" instead of "Act One, Scene One" but knowing that you just need to hit Next to go to the next scene has made it pretty easy to find my place in the play.

I was also pleasantly surprised by the performance. I've listened to plenty of audiobooks from Audible, including several whose readers were painful to listen to. I think this cast is clear and engaging. I played a clip to my students, and they enjoyed it much more than other performances we had listened to.

This dramitization followed original script word for word. I read as I listened to know whose voice was speaking.

Useful as a teaching resource alongside the text.

Would you consider the audio edition of Macbeth: Fully Dramatized Audio Edition to be better than the print version?

No, although it is very helpful to use when reading in class.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Macbeth: Fully Dramatized Audio Edition?

Some of the soliloquies are well-done, which helps when teaching as usually students tend to lose interest depending on the grade-level one teaches.

Did full cast do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes. It was clear which character was speaking at all times. However, some of the interpretations of the characters were a little hammy (witches), and there are more than a few dodgy accents in there. Despite this, it was still useful as a teaching tool and wasn't a distraction from the plot or story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Voice actors don't match the characters

The actors sound constantly out of breath and stumbling, like overly dramatic teenagers or Michael Cera. Not at all fitting for the figures King MacBeth and Banquo. Completely ruins the story hearing their uneven breaths and insecure delivery.

Especially after listening to the Tempest, narrated by Ian McKellen, this audio book sounds completely amateur .

Couldn't make it past the first thirty minutes.

Wonderful

Exceptions:

Lady Macbeth's performance was a bit underwhelming compared with the rest.

I wish they removed the Weird Sisters introductory parts.

listened for 10 minutes

Plays do not translate to audiobook.

Sure, the Shakespearean prose is better when performed, but in a book or play there are visual cues about who is taking. In this full cast performance you must listen and hope the character announces themselves before speaking.

But with so much dramatic soliloquy, it's impossible to know who is bemoaning the cruel twistings of fate.
