Trickery and magic, romance, and revenge set the stage for one of Shakespeare’s late masterpieces, The Tempest, in which sprites, goddesses, and fools hold court. Prospero, the deposed Duke of Milan and now a powerful magician, raises a great storm to wreck the vessel-bearing betrayers on the shores of the mysterious island Prospero has made home. There, attended upon by Miranda, Prospero’s child, a magical sprite, and a villainous prisoner, Prospero leads them through a mysterious dream on a course from vengeance to reconciliation.
