#MQ - Colin Morgan attends a gala screening of ‘Cloud Atlas’ at The Curzon Mayfair on February 18, 2013 in London
We have a great Shakespearian season of magic, enchantment and the fantastical lined up. The Tempest with Roger Allam returning to play Prospero, Colin Morgan as Ariel in his Globe debut and Jessie Buckley as Miranda.
According to their schedule The Tempest will premiere on April 23rd at 7:30pm, last performance will be on August 18th at 6:30pm.
WE ARE SUCH STUFF AS DREAMS ARE MADE ON.
Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda and served by his spirit Ariel and his deformed slave Caliban. When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach.
Inspired by reports of the first English colonies in the West Indies and imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s late great masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment.
Jeremy Herrin’s previous work for Shakespeare’s Globe includes 2011’s much loved Much Ado About Nothing.
This production will employ Renaissance costumes and staging.
Ariel, a mischievous spirit who does Prospero’s bidding and is visible only to him. He became Prospero’s “slave” because he was saved by him from being trapped in a tree by Sycorax.
