The Tempest


Synetic’s legendary, cinematic adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest returns – with the famed water-filled stage and visual poetry that made the original production an unforgettable sensation when it premiered in 2013. When the magical and powerful Prospero creates a sea storm, he gets more than he bargained for as romantic drama, deception, and quests for vengeance emerge from the depths. Spirits, monsters, witches, drunken fools, and lithe lovers contort and cavort with passion and bravado in one of Shakespeare’s most high-stakes and irreverent comedies.
