Simon Russell Beale returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company after 20 years to play Prospero in this groundbreaking production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran.
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 seems.
The Tempest opened in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in November 2016. The Live from Stratford-upon-Avon cinema broadcast offers audiences a unique chance to see this ground-breaking adaptation. In a unique partnership with Intel, the production will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience.
“The finest Prospero I have ever seen”
