The Tempest

We saw The Tempest in the evening at the outdoor theater. Before going to the play, we went to the orientation and then to the Green Show.




The Tempest, one of Shakespeare’s last plays is a comedy set on a remote enchanted island. The plot revolves around Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, as he works to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and skillful manipulation. He conjures up a storm, the tempest, to lure his brother Antonio, who has stolen the position of the Duke of Milan, and his co- conspirator, Alonso, the King of Naples to the island. There, Prospero is able, with the help of Ariel, a spirit and servant, to bring about the revelation of Antonio's lowly nature, the redemption of the King, and the marriage of Miranda to Alonso's son, Ferdinand.

The following morning we went to the Literary Seminar where the play from the previous night was discussed.  Everyone there agreed that it was truly a magical production.


After that was over, we went to the Costume Seminar… this is the robe from King John that we saw later in the week.


We went for a bite of lunch at Ricardo’s and then to Mickey D’s…
