Adapted and Directed By Victor Maog
The Tempest is Shakespeare's magical and mysterious final play. It tells the story of a banished Prospero who controls his island-prison, its visitors, and its inhabitants by mixing reality and illusion to create a world in which nothing is as it seems. Victor Maog's new ninety
minute adaptation, in which three actors play all of Shakespeare's roles, concentrates on the play's themes of imprisonment, longing, and love.

LA TEMPESTAD - a contemporary romantic fantasy sets Prospero on the tropical island of
Vieques, Puerto Rico in self-imposed exile where he practices the antiquarian arts. After a stormy crossing, three couples - including Prospero's daughter Miranda and her fiancÚ Ferdinand - are swept up in the island's history of passion, politics and magic. As U.S. military
pilots practice for the invasion of Iraq in the unpredictable skies overhead, each couple ponders the prospects of marriage and tests the limits of their love. La Tempestad is performed in English.
