Exiled to an abandoned island in the middle of the sea, Prospero—the former Duke of Milan—grows into a powerful sorcerer. When chance brings his enemies close to his shores, Prospero schemes his revenge against the ones who overthrew him: his cunning sister, Antonia, and Alonso, the King of Naples. Raising a powerful storm with the help of his faithful and spritely servant, Ariel, Prospero brings the shipwrecked king and crew into his world of mystery, danger and enchantment. Family and political drama intertwine with lighthearted comedy and romance as fools, lovers, and villains alike traverse the island in William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
