In an interview, one of the actors commented that this is a hopeful rather than despairing Macbeth, because when evil swells to a certain point, the community unites to drive it out (though the production also suggests that evil can never be eradicated). This is a genuinely interesting approach, and it's a real accomplishment to bring this level of vitality, surprise and excitement to one of Shakespeare's most-performed works.
