A very special collaborative production of the last play William Shakespeare ever penned, The Tempest, with Jean Sibelius’ imaginative and inventive score. Set on a remote and mysterious desert island, inspired by Elizabethan reports of the West Indies in the 16th century and imbued with a spirit of magic and superstition, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s tumultuous play of betrayal, love, and forgiveness.
