The Tempest is a play that has delighted audiences for over 400 years presenting a “brave new world” of wonder, comedy, and romance. It is regarded by almost all scholars as Shakespeare’s last complete work being written around 1610 -1611. This magical masterpiece follows the great wizard Prospero who, along with his daughter Miranda, has been banished from his dukedom in Milan to an isolated island. Prospero uses his sorcery to conjure a storm to shipwreck the usurpers of his throne and lure them to the heart of the island, where they are drawn into a web of magical spells, love at first sight, and old revenges that only Prospero’s forgiveness – and some otherworldly assistance – can remedy. The confrontations that ensue explore themes of vengeance, forgiveness, death, and resurrection.
