Ralph Fiennes in the The Tempest August 27th-October 29th

The Trevor Nunn Season

If you acted upon my recommendation and purchased tickets to the 400th anniversary production of The Tempest at Middle Temple Hall, you might not want another Tempest in your plans.   However, Trevor Nunn will direct Ralph Fiennes in William Shakespeare’s The Tempest as the third production of his season at the Theatre Royal Haymarket

Almost certainly Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest can lay claim to being the first ever work of magic realism.

Marooned and left to die on a remote island, Prospero can command spirits, create apparitions and manipulate the elements. By using his magic, he assembles his enemies to take revenge on them, and in the process awakens in Miranda, his teenage daughter, her first experience of love. The theme of reconciliation gives immense emotional force to Shakespeare’s farewell to the stage.
