It seemed entirely appropriate to me that the quotation was included on
the packaging. Since the Hogwart's Choir performs a classic rendition of
"Double Double," and, since the school seems to be the Oxford or
Cambridge for a diploma in magical arts, I would imagine that somewhere
in the course catalogue, a detailed study of the Scottish play and its
main "stars" is a required course. In fact, Potions is part of Harry's
syllabus.

Kinda makes you wonder about Shakespeare's English teacher...

That is because in the film version some pupils give a performance at
the start of the term and the choir song features lyrics from the
witches' singing in _Macbeth_.
