Stratford Shakespeare Festival in Canada presents The
Tempest, starring Academy Award winner Christopher Plummer.
Courtesy of BY Experience, the stage play was captured with eight
cameras in high-definition over two days.
The Tempest pits the desire for revenge against the demands of love and asks if man is capable of creating a brave new world. The story focuses on Prospero (Plummer), the banished Duke of Milan. Marooned on a distant island with his daughter, Miranda (Trish Lindström), Prospero has spent 12 years perfecting his magic arts. Now, with the help of the spirit Ariel (Julyana Soelistyo), he raises a storm at sea, bringing within his grasp the enemies who robbed him of his dukedom.
The presentation will include a 20-minute captured live Q&A with Christopher Plummer and Des McAnuff, hosted by Barry Avrich, executive producer of The Tempest. The Q&A reunites Plummer and McAnuff in a lively and insightful discussion about the challenges of capturing live theater for cinema screens.
