Macbeth disappoints this reader

Re: Review: MacBeth, Oct.11-17

This long-time opera goer disagrees totally with reviewer Brent Schaus.  I found Morris Panych’s direction an embarrassment of clichés and missed opportunities. Panych and crew gave us a high-school quality production.  They did not do their homework. My last, disappointed word on Panych’s Macbeth: how could any director, let alone one with Panych’s reputation, do such a superficial job directing the witches? Centuries of ideas about those creatures could have provided him with a few thoughtful hints.
