With performances by world famous award winning Shakespearean actors, The Shakespeare Series has recaptured the Elizabethan flavor of Shakespeare's own Globe productions by staging them just as they were seen in the 16th century. The fantasy world of spirits, sorcery, monsters, maidens and shipwrecked scheming noblemen is brought to life in The Tempest. Feuding noblemen, embroiled in a world of spirits and sorcery, are forced to come to terms with their past when their children meet by chance and fall in love. A tempest of wind and rain raised by the magician Prospero, shipwrecks Alonso, King of Naples and his shipboard companions including Duke Antonio of Milan. Unbeknown to the rest of the castaways, Ferdinand, the King's son, arrives separately and meets Miranda, Prosperos' daughter, leading to inevitable love. Featuring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., William H Bassett, Ted Sorel. Grades 9-12. 127 minutes on DVD.
