A Stratford Shakespeare Festival Production, 2010

From the moment Ariel slowly descends from the heavens, you will be captivated by the Stratford Festival’s magical production, starring Christopher Plummer as Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, marooned on a distant island with his daughter, Miranda. Recorded live at Stratford in glorious high-definition, viewing this production of The Tempest is almost better than the best seat in the house. Hailed as one of the finest classical actors of his generation, Oscar® winner Christopher Plummer brings the language of Shakespeare vividly to life, while director Des McAnuff uses the most thrilling theatrical wizardry to conjure Prospero’s mystical isle. Having spent twelve years perfecting his magic arts, Prospero raises a storm at sea, bringing within his grasp the enemies who robbed him of his dukedom. This culminating masterpiece of Shakespeare’s career pits the desire for revenge against the demands of love and asks if man is capable of creating a brave new world. With Trish Lindstrom as Miranda and Julyana Soelistyo as Ariel. (131 min.)
