Storyboard Text

  • "They met me in the day of success, and I have learned by the perfect'st report they have more in them than mortal knowledge...Whiles I stood rapt in the wonder of it came missives from the King, who all-hailed me "Thane of Cawdor"..."
  • "Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be What thou art promised... Thou woudst be great, Art not without ambition, but without The illness should attend it... And that which rather thou dost fear to do, Than wishest should be undone."
  • (whisper)- "Hie thee hither, That I may pour my spirits in thine ear And Chastise with the valor of my tongue All that impedes thee from the golden round, Which fate and metaphysical aid doth seen To have thee crowned withal."
  • (frightened/startled)- "The King comes here tonight.. So please you it is true. Our thane is coming."
  • What is your tidings?
  • "The raven himself is hoarse. Come, you spirits That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full of direst cruelty. Make thick my blood.. Come, thick night, And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell..."
  • Lady Macbeth receives a letter from Macbeth. As she reads it, the audience hears the unseen Macbeth narrate the letter. Different emotions are seen on Lady Macbeth while she reads it and responds, much of which is excitement for what is soon to come with her and Macbeth and their power. She places the letter close to her heart.
  • "My dearest love, Duncan comes here tonight... Tomorrow as he purposes... We will speak further.
  • "Great Glamis, worthy Cawdor, Greater than both by all-hail hereafter!.. O, never Shall sun that morrow see! .. Bear welcome in your eye, Your hand, your tongue. Look like th' innocent flower, But be the serpent under't.
  • Lady Macbeth speaks to Macbeth even though he is not there and she is alone. She talks about how she will work with Macbeth and make him a great and powerful king. While this occurs, she is disturbed by a messenger that has brought her news that the King is coming in the night.
  • Lady Macbeth remains while the messenger leaves. She shouts aloud how she feels what she is thinking and speaks with spirits and the night and other supernatural things to have them make her less of a woman, and more of a brutal person. She is crazed with power and the death of the king that is to come as she expresses her ambitions.
  • After the crazy Lady Macbeth talks with some spirits to give her power, Macbeth enters and they discuss their devious and sneaky plans for the future. Lady Macbeth tells Macbeth how he should appear innocent and like he is not doing anything, but should be fierce and cruel on the inside. The scene ends.
