Notes from the Director

Macbeth is a play that is saturated in fear. Witches, magic, war, political unrest, all of these create an atmosphere of terror in the play. However, the true fear comes not in the blood and gore, but in the startling recognition of humanity in the play’s tragic villain, Macbeth. Macbeth is brutally murderous. He kills men, women, and children. However, unlike the villains we love—Richard III or Iago—Macbeth cannot delight in his acts. His imagination plagues him until the end, and although he recognizes, weighs, and is revolted by the implications of his actions, he acts nonetheless. Shakespeare is a master at creating complicated and conflicting characters and Macbeth is the pinnacle, a ruthless murderer with a boundless imagination and the ability to love.

In the world today, we behold images of violence and death almost daily. Unarmed drivers shot by law enforcement, tourists being run down in crowded marketplaces, chemical weapons being dropped on innocents, and all too often it feels that all we can do is wonder why?  We want to find a reason why someone would commit these acts. We need to know what causes someone to hurt, to destroy, and to murder. It would help to make sense of such senselessness if there was an outside force dictating these actions.

In Macbeth, we want desperately to believe that magical forces push the tragic hero/villain. We hope there is something dark outside of our control that illustrates that a man revered in his society, who is respected and accomplished, as Macbeth is, can commit such atrocities.

This is the fear in the play. Not the magic or the blood, but the simple fact that Macbeth knows what he is doing, and our own ambition, jealousy, and greed is the dark force acting on us. Shakespeare shows us a world that fosters violence, a world that begs for it, and then gives us the most human character. A man who makes the choice, over and over, to satisfy his own ruthlessness.

Music Director’s Notes

In the line of Shakespearean tragedies, Macbeth makes a more profound impact with less material than any other. Though often noted as the shortest of Shakespeare’s tragedies or the tragedy that lacks subplots, the play resonates deeply with me for the enormity of its philosophical explorations with such a direct focus, not in spite of it.

When Matt and I first discussed musical and sonic approaches to Macbeth, he encouraged me to explore a sound that matches Shakespeare both in mood and form, stretching how much I could do with a limited palette. The result is a score that is more consistent, sometimes persistent, than in other Shakespeare plays we’ve taken on at The Rogue, but often pared down to one or two notes or in some cases no actual melodies at all.

The two main instruments I play for this production have been re-purposed to create a sound unique to this world. I’ve detached the front piece of the piano, allowing me to play the strings inside, mixed with different sustaining and muting techniques. The mandolin, affixed to a stand, is played entirely by bow, more closely mirroring the darker tones of viola da gamba—a precursor to the modern day violin family of instruments.

My deepest thanks to the cast who bring this music to life by embodying the soundscape of Macbeth’s Scotland in every scene and to Matt whose friendship and collaborative spirit pushed me every step of the way.

—Jake Sorgen, Music Director and Composer
