There is no score for this work currently available. Please contact the composer for more information.
Composed for the Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre's 2010 production.
"Composer Melissa Dunphy has provided a soundscape for an assortment of exotic instruments played onstage: a Chinese ehru, Tibetan ringing bowls, and a varity of drums and gongs. The result not only heightens the atmosphere of the play, but in fact signals how we're supposed to feel about the action." [Philadelphia Inquirer]
"Macbeth shows Khan's willingness to experiment, focusing on Macbeth and his wife in a 90-minute paring driven by Melissa Dunphy's beautifully haunting music." [Philadelphia Citypaper]
