THE TEMPEST

From magic, a storm; from a storm, vengeance; from vengeance, virtue. The dramatic themes of Shakespeare’s The Tempest resonate more strongly with every passing year. Indeed, the passage of time and knowledge is one of the play’s most important themes, with a wronged man learning to wield his power with humility and empathy. Filled with romantic machinations, political scheming, and some of Shakespeare’s most vivid characters, The Tempest is a perennially popular tale now seen as one of his greatest works.

Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, is stranded on an island with his daughter, Miranda. Possessing magic powers, Prospero conjures a storm with the intent of exposing his brother Antonio and King Alonso, who had him deposed. As Miranda falls in love with Alonso’s son Ferdinand, Prospero’s quest to reestablish his power leads him to a compelling dilemma: whether to destroy or forgive his enemies.
