The result? This great footage with Lego characters taking on the roles of the witches in Macbeth as well as star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet.

The set is constructed entirely from Lego bricks and even includes a curtain opening and closing on the action.

Words are added on silent-movie style boards while a dramatic film score adds to the five-star performance.

Of course there’s a little 2016 twist added to the Lego version – we sure don’t remember Romeo having an iPhone in traditional performances.

Also given the Lego treatment is A Midsummer Night’s Dream, specifically when Bottom is transformed into a donkey.
