|Abstrakt EN:||The presentation aims to examine the BBC drama ShakespeaRe-Told Macbeth (adapted by Peter Moffat, directed by Mark Brozel, 2005) in terms of its relationship to Shakespeare’s "Tragedy of Macbeth". The BBC Macbeth explores a microcosm of a classy, Michelin-starred restaurant run by Duncan Docherty. Although the restaurant's success is due to its highly skilful head-chef Joe Macbeth, his contribution to the success of the restaurant is not acknowledged. His disappointment and frustration grow when Duncan’s diner is awarded three Michelin stars, as already predicted by witches-garbage collectors, and Duncan announces his intention to leave the restaurant to his son, a former vegetarian. Finally, I will argue that Brozel's TV version is a distinctive Shakespearean reconfiguration which both centralizes and hinges on Shakespeare's play.|
