Kenneth Branagh will return to Shakespeare after more than a decade for the Manchester International Festival.
In 2013 Branagh will star in the title role of Macbeth, which will be directed by Tony winner Rob Ashford.
Seventeen performances of the Shakespeare classic will be staged in a deconsecrated church. Additional casting and creative team members will be announced at a later time.
The upcoming festival will also include performances by the British young band The xx and The Biospheric Project, which will see a prototype urban farm created in a disused city center mill on the River Irwell.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
