King Alonso of Naples and his men are sailing home to Italy from his daughter’s wedding in Tunis, Africa. Trouble ensues, however when they’re met by a tempest that ravages their vessel. All are forced to jump from and boat to be washed ashore on a strange island. Unbeknownst to them, the island is inhabited by Prospero, the magician who conjured the storm, and his daughter Miranda. They are served by the half-human Caliban and sprite Ariel. Prospero has led them to this island to seek retribution for wrongs committed against him before Miranda’s birth. As Prospero pursues his plans, Miranda and Ferdinand, son of King Alonso, meet and fall in love. Prospero sees the happiness of these young lovers and his heart begins to soften. He learns the importance of mercy. By the play’s close, all is forgiven and there is a wedding in the very near future.
