About this show

Romance, magic and a deserted island - the final and most beloved masterpiece of Shakespeare's life places the desire for revenge against the demands of love and captures the essence of the human condition with its compelling and timeless themes. Marooned on a distant island with his daughter Miranda, Prospero has spent twelve years perfecting his magic. When he learns that a ship bearing his old enemies is sailing near the island, with the help of the spirit Ariel, he raises a torrential storm, bringing within his grasp the enemies who robbed him of his dukedom. An enchanted tale filled with humor, romance and adventure, The Tempest is ultimately a tale of redemption and forgiveness.
