Tempest

TempestT1705132015
Banished to an island in the Mediterranean with nothing but their magical books, Prospero waits in isolation for twelve long years. Consumed by a desire for revenge, they forge a new life with their daughter Miranda, slave Caliban and servant-spirit Ariel. Using Ariel, and all of his qualities, Prospero conducts a terrible storm to shipwreck their enemies, stranding them in Prospero's new kingdom. Divided, lost, and confused, the group find themselves at the mercy of Prospero's vengeance. But will Prospero's bitterness destroy them, or will humanity prevail? Underscored by live music, featuring newly composed songs, as well as Shakespearean originals, this adrenaline-fuelled reimagining brings a fresh perspective to a timeless classic.
