Verdi was so inspired by Shakespeare’s tragedy, calling it ‘one of the greatest creations of man’, that he created his own version.  Remember the story?  Man overhears three witches saying that he’ll become the King of Scotland and, with the help of his pushy wife, decides to make sure the prophecy comes true. It doesn’t go well. Find a cinema near you. More live screenings this month include the National Theatre’s Julius Caesar (Fri 6 April) and Royal Shakespeare Company’s Macbeth (Weds 11 April).
