Storyboard Text

  • The night has been unruly. Where we lay, our chimneys were blown and, as they say, Lamentings heard i' th' ai, strange screams of death...
  • What's the matter?
  • Most sacrilegious murder hath broke ope the Lord's anointed temple and stole thence the life o' th' building.
  • Awake, awake! Ring the alarum bell. Murder and treason! Banquo and Donalbain, Malcolm, Awake! Shake off this downy sleep, death’s counterfeit, And look on death itself!
  • Lennox is talking to Macbeth about how chaotic the night has been. Some people heard cries of grief and others strange screams of death.
  • Whats the business, that such a hideous trumpet calls to parley the sleepers of the house? Speak!
  • Macduff is informing Macbeth and Lennox that a murderer has broken into his temple and taken a life.
  • O, Banquo, Banquo, our royal master's murdered!
  • Woe, alas! What, in our house?
  • Macduff is trying to wake Duncan's sons-Donalbain and Malcolm- and Banquo up to notify them that the king is dead.
  • The spring, the head, the fountain of your blood is stopped; the very source of it is stopped.
  • What is amiss?
  • As Macduff is playing the trumpet to signify the King's death, Lady Macbeth wonders why he is playing it.
  • Banquo arrives, and Macduff informs him that Duncan was killed. Lady Macbeth seems surprised to hear the news.
  • Donalbain wonders what's wrong, and Macbeth answers that his father has been killed.
