Productions, Blog


Something wicked this way comes, and it has found its home underground in Gamla Stan. Macbeth will be performed at Musikvalvet, a former wine cellar built long before William Shakespeare was even born. The dynamic tale of ambition, violent death and the supernatural will be portrayed by three actors in a unique version with the script cut down to the central story. Macbeth, the warrior is told by the witches that he will be king, and from that moment, pushed on by his ambitious wife, his life is doomed.

The play is directed by Elisabeth Dahl from The Norwegian Shakespeare Company. In the roles are SEST’s Kristina Leon as Lady Macbeth, Richard Asker as Banquo and Macduff, and Keith Foster, television presenter at UR and SVT, playing Macbeth.

Macbeth in November!



SEST is happy to present Macbeth, which is a collaboration with the Norwegian Shakespeare Company and Words in Action.

In an ancient former wine cellar in Gamla Stan in Stockholm, the hideous, tragic tale of Macbeth will be played out. This is a shorter version of the classic play, dynamic, fast-paced and claustrophobic.

Performed by 3 actors – Keith Foster as Macbeth, Kristina Leon as Lady Macbeth and Richard Asker as Banquo, Macduff and others. Directed by Elisabeth Dahl of the Norwegian Shakespeare Company, who originally revised the script for this version. The production is supported by Stockholms Stad.
