The Tempest

Metropolitan Opera House
New York, New York 

As a tempest rages inside Prospero, the wrongfully banished Duke of Milan, he conjures a violent storm to bring his foes to the enchanted island he has shared with his daughter and the spirit Ariel for the past twelve years. Imbued with magic and the supernatural, Shakespeare's late great masterpiece is a meditation on romance, revenge and redemption.
