From magic, a storm; from a storm, vengeance; from vengeance, virtue. The dramatic themes of Shakespeare’s The Tempest resonate more strongly with every passing year. Indeed, the passage of time and knowledge is one of the play’s most important themes, with a wronged man learning to wield his power with humility and empathy. Filled with romantic machinations, political scheming, and some of Shakespeare’s most vivid characters, The Tempest is a perennially popular tale now seen as one of his greatest works. Co-founded by Sir Patrick Stewart, Actors From the London Stage is one of the most established Shakespeare theater companies in the world
