We are such stuff as dreams are made on . . .
The Tempest is set on a lonely island that is home to the exiled duke Prospero, his daughter Miranda, the savage Caliban, and elemental spirit Ariel who fills the air with eerie sounds and delightful music.
Prospero uses magic to govern the tiny kingdom, educating Miranda as she grows into a young woman -- until a fleet carrying old enemies and a few friends sails past the island. Their arrival sets the stage for Prospero to wield his sorcery, conjuring a tempest that pits murderous ambition against love, ignorance against wisdom and revenge against redemption.
