Opera Pro Cantanti's production of "Macbeth" by Giuseppe Verdi.  The King of Scotland has been murdered and the people call on God to open the jaws of damnation on the unknown assasin.  They cry out!  "O Lord in heaven, give us wisdom and guide us.   May the wrath of God fall upon the assasin and burn the mark of Cain on his brow!  Punish and brand him forever and ever.  Almighty God, Redeemer, reveal the killer to us."  Macbeth - Richard Williams, and Lady Macbeth - Emily MacKinnon,   Dama (Lady-in-Waiting) - Stephanie Manchulenko,

A banquet in the Great Hall of the Castle to celebrate the new king and queen.  All is wonderful, no more misery, heartache and sorrow.  Suddenly Macbeth stares at a chair where he sees the ghost of Banquo occupying it.  Everyone starts talking about fear and horror.  Macbeth curses unholy creatures.  Let the witches bare his future.  Whence the veil they shall withdraw!

The Doctor and The Lady-in-Waiting to Lady Macbeth are sure that she will appear soon.  She enters carrying a lantern she keeps lit by her bedside to banish the darkness.  Her eyes are wide open but it seems as if she doesn't see them or anything else.  She rubs her hands as if to wash them.  She is trying to wash off the blood of the King she and Macbeth assassinated but in her eyes, it will not wash off.  She is asleep and doesn't realize what she is doing.  The Doctor and The Lady-in-Waiting pray, asking the gracious Lord to save her. 

Dama (lady-in-waiting) played by Stephanie Manchulenko, Lady Macbeth - Emily MacKinnon and The Doctor - Chris Kovarik.
