    I’m from the US, and was studying in London in 1973. I was particularly excited to see Diana Rigg in the Scottish Play, since growing up I had greatly admired her work in “The Avengers.” At the time I didn’t know anything about Anthony Hopkins, so I am glad this site is here to remind me. (I also saw her in “Jumpers.”)

    My interesting observation is this: While in London, I took a theatre course and our instructor was a friend of Ms Rigg’s, and arranged for her to come to our humble abode on Gower Street to talk to us about theatre. Ms Rigg answered our questions intelligently and candidly. I will always remember her gracious and generous nature.

    It seems my first Lady Macbeth and her husband were Diana Rigg and Anthony Hopkins. The names would have meant nothing to me, and I eventually tossed out my collection of programs. I am happy to say that I found my ticket tonight, though (and posted it here).

    Exchange rates were not good that year, but I see now that the total cost (VAT included) was about a dollar and a quarter.

    Contrary to what the ticket says, my view was NOT impeded. For some reason I can’t quite remember, I was moved forward, to a seat in the middle of the orchestra, where I sat next to a British girl about my age. I was 11 and normally very shy, but that afternoon I was so excited to be at the theater that I agreed to be separated from my family and go sit with strangers. The girl told me she had been to America, because her father was the British ambassador to the U.S. In any case, I had a view I will never forget: Macbeth boring his eyes into the exact spot in the middle distance where he saw the ghost of Banquo. I practiced that for years afterward.
