The Tempest Programme – Royal Shakespeare Company

  • £5.00


Official programme for the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of The Tempest at the Barbican, starring Simon Russell Beale as Prospero.

Discover how the RSC collaboration with Intel evolved, and how working with The Imaginarium Studios on performance-capture technology has pushed the boundaries of live theatre.

Professor Martin White explores how this production of The Tempest echoes the elaborate, groundbreaking court ‘masques’ of the 1600s, and Director Gregory Doran reveals how a well-documented shipwreck, and the commission of a brand-new royal ship, may have inspired Shakespeare’s most magical play.

Plus who was Doctor John Dee and how did the Elizabethans and Jacobeans view magic? The programme also includes production photography, the full cast list, a synopsis and full company biographies.
