Shakespeare X Kankuro KUDO X SHINKANSEN
Steel Rock Spectacle!
It is the first Shakespeare work by SHINKANSEN. “Macbeth” performed on heavy metal sounds was the birth of a new kind of “Macbeth”. Kankuro KUDO, the most sought-after and up-and-coming writer in Japan, has done the adaptation. With his contemporary sensibility, he has transformed the Shakespeare’s dialogue-rich masterpiece into a song-driven story.

A metal band in the 80’s and a Mad Max-like near future intermingle in an eye-opening “New Macbeth”!
In the year 2206, after innumerable slayings and destructions, a heath littered with dead bodies and rubble was left.
Three eerie witches manifest themselves in front of an invincible General Randomstar that ESP Kingdom is proud of.
They leave a prophecy saying, “All of your future is scripted in this compact disc”.
It was a CD made by a heavy metal band named “Metal Macbeth” whose prime was in the 80’s………
