TCM produced an intimate rehearsal dinner for guests and the cast of Shakespeare's Macbeth on the stage of the famed Sydney Theatre. Taking inspiration from the story and tragedy of Macbeth, the dinner guests were transported into an evening’s depiction of a metaphorically macabre, metaphysically reactive and visually spectacular banquet.
Set to inspire and create the feeling of dining in medieval times, the table was draped in regal colours of burgundy and gold. With earthen ware, pewter and silver tankards, wooden platters bursting over with fruit, cane baskets filled with loaves of bread, and leather bound wine bottles and books lining the table, the theming created a feast for the senses and the tastebuds!
To create the feeling of being in an old world from long ago, candelabras basked the stage in candlelight. Nearby armoured helmets and a suit of arms added to the old worldly feel. The highlight of the setting was the hanging feature - two rustic wooden ladders and a wooden wheel covered in vines, ivy, twigs and grandfather's beard, suspended over the centre of the banquet table.
