Shakespeare’s Globe 2013 production of ‘The Tempest’ recorded live at the Globe, June 2013. Widely considered to be the last of his solo plays, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s final masterpiece, a tale of ‘forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment’ in which Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, conjures up a storm to lure his perfidious brother to the enchanted island on which he and his daughter Miranda have spent 12 years in exile. Combining sumptuous Jacobean costume with enchanting music and ‘spellbinding staging’ (The Daily Telegraph), this acclaimed Globe production - starring Olivier Award winner Roger Allam as a ‘poignantly humane’ Prospero (The Financial Times) - is a touching portrayal of one of the Bards’ most lyrical stage works. Filmed in High Definition and true surround sound. Spoken in Shakespeare’s English.
