Summary/Abstract: Magdalena Hasiuk reviews the Théâtre du Soleil performance Macbeth. William Shakespeare's Tragedy as (presently) staged at Théâtre du Soleil (prem.: 30 Apr 2014). The author pays particular attention to the spectacular aspect of the performance, describing the multiplicity of the means of stage expression employed in it. The images built on the stage create parallels to the history of Macbeth's downfall. Hasiuk also describes the role of the actors in the meticulously structured onstage world. She particularly emphasises the title role performed by Serge Nicolaï, who expresses the metamorphoses and paradoxes shaping Macbeth through his body.
