Scene from Macbeth Kabuki-Style | Japanese Culture

In this segment, actors Michael Goldberg and Barbara Robertson perform the scene from Macbeth in which Macbeth and Lady Macbeth plot the murder of Duncan. The text used by the actors in this video was adapted to better suit Kabuki-style performance and only resembles the standard text of Macbeth. However, the basic plot elements are intact.
