I Love the Commentary

I'm a high school teacher and bought this to sue with my class. I don't find the commentary distracting but helpful. My students quickly figured out that when a particular voice was talking that was explanation. Also, there is a version of the play without any commentary in the file as well.

Now I get it...

The narration and explanations are helpful. I have always struggled through Shakespearean plays.

Don't fret.

This production also comes with a performance that is uninterrupted. Start on Chapter 6 of the audio book for it.

Brilliantly explained

Would you consider the audio edition of Macbeth to be better than the print version?

I have never read the play.

Any additional comments?

The additional notes and comments really helped me to understand the difficult language. The fact that you can then listen without these, after gaining a better understanding adds to the experience
