enjoyable solipsism

I can listen to this over and over again, as horrible as the action is. It's just one of those things. Highly recommend it.

Well worth a listen

If you could sum up Macbeth (Dramatised) in three words, what would they be?

Powerful and striking.


What does Alec Guinness and Pamela Brown bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Their performances were excellent, as were those of the rest of the cast. They really bring out the way Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are traveling in opposite directions -- Guinness going from meek to fiery, Brown starting strong and then showing her character's deterioration.


Any additional comments?

The sound quality was good overall, but there was some sort of noise going on in the background -- sort of a knocking sound. It wasn't noticeable all the time but could be a little distracting at quieter moments. That's the reason for my giving this four stars instead of five. But that was my only problem with an otherwise great recording.
