MANCHESTER - Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning presents Macbeth from the National Theatre in London on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m. at Burr and Burton Academy's Riley Center for the Arts in Manchester.

This high-definition broadcast stars Kenneth Branagh in his first Shakespeare performance in over a decade as Macbeth, and Alex Kingston as Lady Macbeth. Directed by Rob Ashford and Branagh, this electrifying new production of Shakespeare's tragic tale of ambition and treachery unfolds within the walls of an intimate deconsecrated Manchester, England church. Tickets are $18 for adults; $12 for seniors; and $9 for students and can be purchased online at bbatickets.com

Tickets are also available at the door. For more information, visit greenmtnacademy.org or call Karen Dreiblatt at 802-768-8079.

National Theatre Live is presented in partnership with Aviva and distributed internationally (ex-UK) by New York-based BYExperience. This presentation is co-sponsored by Green Mountain Academy, Burr and Burton Academy and Northshire Performing Arts.
