      A TRAGEDIE

      In 1978, the BBC set itself the task of filming all of William Shakespeare’s plays for television. The resulting productions, renowned for their loyalty to the text, utilised the best theatrical and television directors and brought great performances from leading contemporary actors.

      ‘O wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here!
      How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,
      that has such people in’t.’

      Prospero, the true Duke of Milan is now living on an enchanter island with his daughter Miranda, the savage Caliban and Ariel, a spirit of the air. Raising a storm to bring his brother – the usurper of his dukedom – along with his royal entourage, to the island, Prospero contrives his revenge.

      The quality cast of this production help bring to life the magic and intrigue of a tale of spirits, sorcery, monsters, maidens and shipwrecked, scheming noblemen. In what is regarded as his final play, Shakespeare, at the height of his powers, deftly explores the contrasting themes of control and power, illusion and reality and nature and society.

      ABOUT THE TEMPEST

      From its spectacular, storm-ravaged opening, Shakespeare’s last play illustrates his genius for interweaving the tangible and intangible elements of human existence . . .

      The Kings Men acted The Tempest before their patron, James I & VI of Scotland, at Whitehall on First Day of November 1611. (It was also chosen for performances during the festivities for the marriage of James’s daughter, Princess Elizabeth, to the Elector Palatine during the winter of 1612-13.)

      Shakespeare’s play takes place on a desert island somewhere between Tunis and Naples; he derived some details of it from his reading of travel literature, including accounts of an expedition of nine ships taking five hundred colonists from Plymouth to Virginia, which set sail in May 1609. On 29 July the flagship, the Sea-Adventure, was wrecked by a storm on the coast of the Bermudas. She was presumed lost, but on 23 May 1610 those on board her arrived safely in Jamestown, having found shelter on the island of Bermuda where they were able to build the pinnances in which they completed their journey.
