The Sun Valley Shakespeare Festival is presenting The Bard’s final masterwork, “The Tempest,” this summer.

This romance is Shakespeare’s last and arguably finest complete play, filled with some of his best use of language, metaphor and character.

The sorcerer Prospero is a deposed duke, banished to a remote island with his daughter Miranda. Through magic, he seeks revenge on the brother who took his fortune by creating a storm to shipwreck him and his crew on the shore.

With the help of his mischievous spirit, Ariel, Prospero seeks to restore Miranda to her rightful place.
