Introduction

(Macbeth: The DVD Edition includes everything you've come to expect from the Folger Shakespeare Library editions of Shakespeare's plays -- facing-page explanatory notes, scene-by-scene plot summaries, illustrations from the Folger archives -- combined here with a bonus DVD of a performance of Macbeth recorded before a rapt audience in the Folger's intimate Elizabethan Theatre. Conceived and directed by Teller (of Penn & Teller) and Aaron Posner, this acclaimed production showcases the inventive magic of Teller, who, with Posner, contributes a new foreword to this edition, writing about their vision of the play as a "supernatural horror thriller." Macbeth: The DVD Edition is the perfect volume for those encountering the play for the first time and for those finding brilliant new insights into a classic.

THIS DVD EDITION INCLUDES:

? DVD of the 2008 Folger Theatre/Two River Theater Company production -- with over 50 minutes of special features, including interviews with the directors, actors, designers, and scholars
? Foreword by directors Teller and Aaron Posner on the staging of Macbeth
? Freshly edited text based on the 1623 First Folio
? Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play
? A key to the play's famous lines and phrases
? An introduction to reading Shakespeare's language in Macbeth
? Illustrations from the Folger Shakespeare Library's vast holdings of rare books
? An essay by Susan Snyder that provides a modern perspective on the play
