"It takes a few minutes to get used to it. To see Macbeth as a fighting cock, reddish gold with a cruel, curved beak and a ruffled crest, and Duncan as a mighty swan, his wings stretched out as if to shelter the stage, with a chanin of honour around his neck. To see the witches as scrawny vultures."
~ Susannah Clapp, The Observer, 20 October 2013
"It's performed to a recorded soundtrack, which sometimes makes it feel like an illustrated radio play."
