One of literature’s finest comedies and Shakespeare’s final work, The Tempest is a tale of the maiden Miranda and her magician father Prospero who live alone on an enchanted island with their servants and Ariel, an invisible sprite and Caliban, a witch’s monstrous son.  Into their isolated lives comes a shipwrecked party including the enemies who usurped Prospero’s dukedom and set he and his daughter adrift on the ocean.  There is also a handsome prince, the first young man Miranda has ever seen.
