A Step 4 Reading and Training graded reader, retold by James Butler. The tragedy of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth and their ambitious, bloody path to tyrannical power – and madness – is as powerful now as it was in Shakespeare’s day. This reader uses the "Expansive Reading"approach, where the text becomes a springboard to improve language skills and to explore historical background, cultural connections and other topics suggested by the text. As well as the story, this reader contains:
• An introduction about Shakespeare and his life
• A wide range of interactive activities practising the four skills
• Dossiers: Films of Macbeth, Scotland’s History, Witches and The Castles of Scotland
• FCE-style interactive activities
• Trinity-style interactive activities (Grade 6)
• A playscript
• A full recording of the text
Audio productions of Shakespeare's work can be a challenge to execute, but L.A. Theatre Works delivers a gripping full-cast dramatization that keeps listeners engaged from start to finish. When Macbeth is told he will one day become king of Scotland, Lady Macbeth hatches an evil plot that ends in bloody regicide and tragedy. James Marsters delivers an admirable performance as Macbeth, conveying the character's conflicting emotions and subsequent arrogance. Equally skilled is Joanne Whalley, whose Lady Macbeth transforms from a determined and opportunistic woman in the beginning of the play to a depressed and despairing one in the final act. Recorded in front of a live audience, this well-produced audio also features music and sound effects all of which make for an absolutely entertaining listening experience.
