'We are such stuff, As dreams are made on, and our little life, Is rounded with a sleep'

A storm rages. Prospero and his daughter watch from their desert island as a ship carrying the royal family is wrecked. Miraculously, all on board survive. Plotting, mistaken identities, bewitching love and enchantment follow as the travellers explore this mysterious place of spirits and monsters, and discover that all is not as it seems. Shakespeare's late, great play is a work filled with marvels, music and strangeness, fully exploiting the power of language and the magic of theatre.

'Shakespeare, coming upon me unawares, struck me like a thunderbolt.' Hector Berlioz

General Editor Stanley Wells
Edited with an Introduction by Martin Butler
