Essentially Macbeth tells the story of a group of ex-drama club members coming together to stage a play (no prizes for guessing what it is!) to reignite their passion for the arts.

Directed by Judy Ngo, with an original score composed by Phang Kok Jun and conducted by Moses Gay, the play is a partnership between the National University of Singapore (NUS) Chinese Drama and the NUS Chinese Orchestra.

A standard ticket will cost you S$20 (excluding the booking fee). PAssion Card, NTUC, merewards, SAFRA and HomeTeam NS members enjoy 20% off the price of a ticket.
