Production programmes are now just $2 and are available for purchase in the theatre foyers. You can also download a copy of the Macbeth programme before you head to the theatre, and a range of other information about the show – ranging from interviews to videos – can be found throughout the season here at mtc.com.au/backstage.
Since our founding days, MTC has presented exceptional productions of both Australian plays and the classics, ensuring that whatever crosses our stages speaks to our times.
Simon Phillips has gathered an extraordinary team behind this production of Macbeth, reinvigorating Shakespeare’s masterpiece, giving fresh perspective and contemporary significance to the iconic narrative.
MTC sits at the heart of one of the world’s great arts precincts, in one of the most vibrant cities of the world. It’s always a thrill to experience our productions alongside Melbourne’s passionate audiences and I’m sure that this fearless vision of Macbeth will excite generations of theatre-goers, new and old.
We are incredibly grateful for the love and support we receive from our audiences, but with ticket sales only covering just over half of our operating costs, the funding we receive from government, corporate partnerships and donors must do a lot of heavy lifting. Donations to MTC play a crucial and vital role to the Company. They allows us to present the world-class theatre you see on our stages – such as this astonishing production of Macbeth. They also support initiatives such as play developments, writing commissions, subsidised tickets for disadvantaged schools,
our Women in Theatre Program and education activities.
This year through our tax appeal we are asking you to help us continue MTC’s story. Your support will help contribute to MTC’s sustainable growth so that we can continue to create remarkable theatre for everyone. For more information visit mtc.com.au/yourmtc.
As always, thank you for your support and I look forward to seeing you at the theatre.
