The Tempest: storms, schemes, and a happy end

MCNY Blog: New York Stories

On May 27th The Tempest opens the Public Theatre’s annual Shakespeare in the Park season at Central Park’s Delacorte Theatre. Refresh your memory of the plot details as we explore images of various productions of the play in the City Museum’s Theater collection.

The King of Naples is sailing home from the wedding of his daughter. With him are his son Ferdinand, his brother Sebastian, Antonio (the current Duke of Milan), and various members of the king’s household. All of a sudden, a storm appears as if from nowhere. Terrified by the gale, the king’s company plunges into the sea. Everyone makes it safely to a nearby island, but the group is split up. Ferdinand is separated from this father the king and isolated on a different part of the island. So with thunder and flashing lightning begins William Shakespeare’s final play, The Tempest.
