Macbeth has had his close friend Banquo murdered for fear that he would succeed him as king. Fleance, Banquo’s son managed to escape. One of the killers comes to report the news to Macbeth, who is hosting a great feast to celebrate his coronation.
The Ghost of Banquo takes ‘his’ place at the table. There is no seat left for Macbeth. This is, of course, one of the most famous set pieces in all of Shakespeare’s plays.
