The Tempest - synopsis

It was a dark and stormy night …

One of William Shakespeare’s greatest adventures, The Tempest is about revenge, compassion and destiny. This magical tale of enchantment, sorcery and young love is set on a mystical island inhabited by faeries, nymphs, and the all-powerful magician, Prospero. After being exiled by his brother Antonio, Prospero (the rightful Duke of Milan) and his daughter, Miranda, have lived on the island for twelve years, along with Caliban, his slave, and Ariel, his loyal and spritely servant.

The play begins with a violent storm at sea, a shipwreck and a motive for revenge. A shipload of important characters are washed ashore, including Prospero’s wicked brother, Antonio, Alonso, the King of Naples, his son Ferdinand, Alonso's brother Sebastian, the jester Trinculo, and the butler Stefano. There are murder plots and royal jealousy, but love, in several forms, triumphs.
