Stranded on a deserted island, Prospera, Duchess of Milan, is longing for the day when her enemies are brought in front of her face to face. Here comes the chance. The vessel carrying Duke Antonio and King Alonso, who overthrew her Dukedom, is passing by the island. She raises a tempest with her mighty sorcery and leads them to the territory where her plan of performing justice will unfold.

The Tempest is in fact a compilation of Shakespeare’s elements from his works, such as the palace conspiracies in Hamlet and King Lear, the bitter and sweet of romance in Romeo and Juliet as well as the colourful world of genies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The happy ending of Prospera in The Tempest also offers a way out for Shakespeare’s tragedies.

Directed by Andrew Chan, award-winning stage director, this presentation of The Tempest is filled with ATL’s signature qualities – stylistic and sophisticated theatrical maneuvers that deliver messages precisely. Catalysed by ATL’s theatrical aesthetics, Shakespeare’s poetic lines blend well with the stylistic stage directions. The sweetness of Shakespeare is unleashed for all audience to enjoy, no matter whether you are a fan or a beginner.
