Performing Shakespeare

By Ian McKellen and Julian Curry

Ebook £3.99£3.19

Ian McKellen discusses playing Macbeth, in this ebook taken from Shakespeare On Stage: Thirteen Leading Actors on Thirteen Key Roles.

In each volume of the Shakespeare On Stage series, a leading actor takes us behind the scenes, recreating in detail a memorable performance in one of Shakespeare’s major roles. They discuss their character, working through the play scene by scene, with refreshing candour and in forensic detail. The result is a masterclass on playing the role, invaluable for other actors and directors, as well as students of Shakespeare – and fascinating for audiences of the play.

In this volume, Ian McKellen discusses playing the title role in Macbeth opposite Judi Dench in Trevor Nunn's 1976 production for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

This interview, together with the others in the series (with actors such as Derek Jacobi, Jude Law and Patrick Stewart), is also available in the collection Shakespeare On Stage: Thirteen Leading Actors on Thirteen Key Roles by Julian Curry, with a foreword by Trevor Nunn.
