Recorded Live: The Tempest
Simon Russell Beale returns to the RSC after 20 years to play Prospero in this ground-breaking production directed by Artistic Director Gregory Doran.
Director: Gregory Doran
Starring: Simon Russell Beale
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 Tempest’ 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.
In a unique partnership with Intel, the ‘RSC Live: The Tempest’ will be using today’s most advanced technology in a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s magical play, for an unforgettable theatrical experience.
