THE TEMPEST at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre

May 8, 2017

Shakespeare’s THE TEMPEST at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre was an experiment with digital technology which dominates this production. What is particularly interesting about this projection technique is how it burns imagery into the mind leaving quite an impression. I think this should be viewed in the context of a first attempt and there is plenty of room for improvement particularly in the resolution of the imagery.

Simon Russell Beale is a wonderful Prospero and he brings his loveable self to inhabit the role and then on top acts every line to perfection. He reveals hidden depths to the character with his subtle interpretation of the text. Excellent RSC cast supporting.
