The Tempest

The Tempest

at Barbican

Price from $ 91.20

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s ground-breaking production of The Tempest transfers to London for a limited seven week run at the Barbican this summer. Simon Russell Beale plays Prospero in this ground-breaking production directed by RSC 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.
