Due to the Coronavirus restrictions on gatherings and NMSU’s extended Spring Break, we have decided to cancel our production of The Tempest. We are sorry for the disappointment and disruptions this decision may cause.
Book by William Shakespeare
Directed by Michael Wise
May 1 – May 10, 2020
Preview Performance Thurs. April 30, 2020, 5:30 pm
Brimming with enchanted spirits, political intrigue and romance, The Tempest is the last play Shakespeare wrote solely by himself, a kind of magical “farewell fairy tale”. It tells the story of Prospero, a magician/wizard who has been betrayed and ill-treated and is bent on revenge and retribution, until he learns through his magic, through his daughter and his trusted supernatural spirits, and through his own personal transformation the power of forgiveness, the power of “letting go”. The events of the story unfold on a magical island where the play shows us the power of liberation and reconciliation, that we all have the capacity to free ourselves from the confinements of hate, vengeance and envy.
