Storyboard Text

  • 'Tis unnatural, even like the deed that's done. On Tuesday last, a falcon, tow'ring in her pride of place, was by a mousing owl hawked at and killed.
  • And Duncan's horses-a thing most strange and certain-beauteous and swift, the minions of their race, turned wild in nature, broke their stalls, flung out, contending 'gainst obedience, as they would make war with mankind.
  • 'Tis said they eat each other
  • The old man and Ross are talking about the strange occurrences that are happening like how an owl ate a falcon.
  • They were suborned. Malcom and Donalbain, the king's two sons, are stol'n away and fled, which puts upon them suspicion of the deed.
  • Ross tells the old man about how the horses are disobeying their owners and are going wild.
  • 'Gainst nature still! Thriftless ambition, that will raven up thine own lives' means! Then 'tis most like the sovereignty will fall upon Macbeth.
  • The old man tells Ross that he saw some of the horses eating each other like cannibals.
  • He is already named and gone to Scone to be invested.
  • Macduff comes onto the scene and proceeds to tell them that now Donalbain and Malcom are prime suspects in the murder of King Duncan.
  • Ross soon realizes that because King Duncan has died, Macbeth is next in line for the throne.
  • Macduff tells Ross and the old man that Macbeth has already left for Scone to be crowned the new King.
