Will Power is set to present the premiere of his hip-hop version of Caliban’s speech from The Tempest, July 27 on the RSC’s myShakespeare digital platform, a creative space to share thoughts and ideas about Shakespeare’s words, stories, and characters.

Premiering on the same day that the speech will feature as part of the Olympic Games opening ceremony, this modern take on Caliban’s words was specially commissioned for myShakespeare.

The commission is a collaboration with composer Justin Ellington. Together, Ellington and Will Power have created full a cappella and instrumental mixes that can be used by others.
