The Tempest

Shakespeare’s beloved fantasy of magic, monsters, spirits, romance and justice will be heard in a bold new way, with the enchanted soundscape of Prospero’s spells and the lush music of the mystical island itself accompanying some of the greatest language ever written. A transporting experience for you and your whole family.
