On Sunday, November 16 the Aquila Theatre will bring its innovative style and dynamic physical approach to Shakespeare’s magical tale of forgiveness and enlightenment to Valley Performing Arts Center.
Believed to be Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest is imbued with magic, the supernatural, and a heightened sense of theatricality. Prospero, the Duke of Milan, has been usurped and exiled by his own brother. He is stranded on a remote and mystical island with his daughter Miranda who has been on the island from a very young age. Hoping to restore Miranda to her rightful place, and to seek revenge, Prospero conjures a storm to shipwreck his brother and those who conspired against him. The beautiful Miranda falls in love with Ferdinand, son of one of the conspirators, putting her relationship with Prospero to the test just as retribution is finally within reach.
With an ensemble of superb performers and Aquila’s exhilarating execution, this new production of The Tempest is sure to delight.
