Publisher's Summary

This haunting drama of vengeance and forgiveness crowns the group of tragicomic romances that Shakespeare composed at the end of his career. Sometimes read as his farewell to the stage, the play contains some of Shakespeare's most lyrical verse.

Prospero, wise Duke of Milan, has been deposed by Antonio, his wicked brother, and exiled with his daughter Miranda to a mysterious island. But Prospero possesses supernatural powers. Aided by the spirit Ariel, Prospero uses his magical art to bring his enemies under his control.

Prospero is played by Bob Peck, Ariel by Adrian Lester, Jennifer Ehle is Miranda, Simon Russell Beale is Antonio, Jamie Glover is Ferdinand, and Richard McCabe plays Caliban.

    "Love ArkAngel's interpretation of Shakespeare"
    What made the experience of listening to The Tempest the most enjoyable?

    The actors and the production always make ArkAngel top notch!


    What other book might you compare The Tempest to and why?

    Any ArkAngel production of Shakespeare... I particularly enjoy Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Antony and Cleopatra, Taming of the Shrew, King Lear and Romeo and Juliet.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The casting of actors is completely appropriate for the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The ArkAngel productions are a wonderful supplemental component when teaching with Shakespeare. Having students listen while they follow along with the play, brings the words to life for them and allows them to see and hear the play, creating a more dynamic learning experience.
