Watch Patrick Stewart's Macbeth in its Entirety

Macbeth. Dir. Rupert Goold. Perf. Patrick Stewart, Kate Fleetwood, Scott Handy, and Michael Feast. 2010. PBS. 6 October 2010.

Great Performances and PBS Video are now streaming Patrick Stewart's Macbeth in its entirety.

Here's where you can get a head start on Bardfilm: I haven't had a chance to watch it yet (I've just seen the first five minutes), but you can watch the whole thing. Start with chapter one (embedded below) and then head to PBS Video to see the rest. Be cautioned: this is a violent and bloody production.

Watch the full episode. See more Great Performances.
