A GUEST PERFORMANCE AT SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL
A desert island with magic enchantments and treachery
Twelve years prior, Prospero, formerly the Duke of Milan, was usurped by Alonso, King of Naples, and Alonso’s brother, Sebastian and cast adrift with his three-year-old daughter, Miranda. They now live on an island. Before they were put to sea, Gonzalo, Prospero’s faithful courtier, ensured that he took his magic books with him, and on the island he has used his magic art to reign over the native Caliban and the spirit Ariel.
Inspired by reports of the English colonies in the West Indies and imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s great late masterpiece of forgiveness and generosity.
