UA's Arizona Repertory Theatre presents THE TEMPEST
by William Shakespeare I directed by Brent Gibbs
TUCSON, AZ - One of Shakespeare's last and greatest works, The Tempest is part fairy tale, part romance and nothing but pure magic. From the crash of the opening storm, to the echo of the play's famous closing lines, audiences will be spellbound by the beauty of Shakespeare's language and enthralled by the brilliance of his invention. Prospero, the magician and exiled Duke; Miranda, his beautiful daughter; Caliban, his half human slave; and Ariel, a spirit of the air; are all part of the story, but Shakespeare is the true star in this late, great masterpiece of reconciliation and forgiveness.
To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, the Folger Shakespeare Library is sending a First Folio to every state in the United States, and the University of Arizona was chosen through a competitive selection process to be the host site for Arizona! The touring exhibit will be installed at the Arizona State Museum. Join us as we celebrate the greatest playwright of the English language with First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare, and visit firstfolio.arizona.edu to participate in other Shakespeare-related events on and off campus, including our production of The Comedy of Errors, running in repertory with The Tempest!
