Actor, director and musician Christian Friedel and his band Woods of Birnam – named after the famous forest in Shakespeare's "Macbeth" – have created a theatrical concert experience that abolishes the boundaries between history and the present, combines old Shakespearean English with modern pop-rock sounds and takes the audience on a journey into an unfamiliar world. There you will meet kings and queens, witches, fools and many a dark secret. The Shakespearean texts set to music are combined with performative and radio play-like elements from "Hamlet" and "Macbeth", to create an atmospheric work of art that promises an immersive theatre experience for lovers of music and drama alike.
