On a remote island, the magician Prospero lives with his daughter Miranda. Once the Duke of Naples, he was betrayed by his brother Antonio, and now lives exiled along with a mischievous sprite named Ariel and a strange creature named Caliban. Through strange providence, a ship carrying the King of Naples, Prospero's treacherous brother Antonio, and a host of other schemers, ventures close to the island prompting Prospero to conjure a tempest to bring the group into his clutches. Betrayals, conspiracies, and nefarious plots ensue, but also quite a bit of laughter and even some weddings before the end!
Often described as the first of Shakespeare's comedies, The Tempest explores both tragic and comic scenes in a grand story of magic, love, betrayal and forgiveness.
