2016: The Tempest

In William Shakespeare’s The Tempest we are plunged into the breath-taking story of Prospero, exiled Duke of Milan. Banished to a lonely island with only his daughter as company, Prospero has fashioned himself into a great magician, aided by the mischievous spirit Ariel. When his brother Antonio, the man who usurped and exiled him, crosses the sea, Prospero raises the titular tempest, causing Antonio and his whole ship party to wreck on the island. Finally, revenge seems to be within Prospero’s grasp.

The Tempest is one of Shakespeare’s late masterpieces; a story at times uproariously funny, at times beautifully earnest. Accompanied by an original musical score, this Blueprint Masquerades production offered an evening full of magic, excitement and adventure.
