Video Of Welles’ Voodoo Macbeth
Today’s feature article on the many curses of Macbeth comes on the heels of Patrick Stewart opening his celebrated production soon. The article captures many, though not all, of the strange deaths, accidents, and other activity associated with the production of the great Shakespeare play. We’ve been fortunate to be able to offer you a chance to see free newsreel footage of Orson Welles acclaimed production on our community video page . Welles was not 21 when he created the famous production, and made his name as a theatre genius. The video is of the stage production, not his later film version. Using actual Haitian artists, his production was a great sensation. Of course, a critic may have died due to a curse from Welles’ real witch doctor/drummer…but outside of that, everyone seemed to love the production.
