Royal Shakespeare Company presents: The Tempest
On a distant island a man waits.
Robbed of his position, power and
wealth, his enemies have left him in isolation. But this is no ordinary
man, and this no ordinary island. Prospero is a magician, able to
control the very elements and bend nature to his will. When a sail
appears on the horizon, he reaches out across the ocean to the ship that
carries the men who wronged him. Creating a vast magical storm he
wrecks the ship and washes his enemies up on the shore. When they wake
they find themselves lost on a fantastical island where nothing is as it
In a unique partnership with Intel, we will be using today’s most
advanced technology in a bold re-imagining of Shakespeare’s magical play,
creating an unforgettable theatrical experience.
Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play
Prospero in a production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran.
