LONDON: First Look - Rehearsal Photos from THE TEMPEST Directed by Trevor Nunn and Starring Ralph Fiennes

First Look - Rehearsal Photos from The Tempest

The Tempest, the third production in the Trevor Nunn Season, previews at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 27 August, with press night on 6 September and is booking until 29 October 2011.  Set and costume designs are by Stephen Brimson Lewis, with lighting by Paul Pyant, sound by Paul Groothuis and music by Shaun Davey.  The Tempest is produced by the Theatre Royal Haymarket Company, Duncan C Weldon, Paul Elliott & Terri and Timothy Childs. 


Almost certainly Shakespeare’s last play, The Tempest can lay claim to being the first ever work of magic realism.  Marooned and left to die on a remote island, Prospero can command spirits, create apparitions and manipulate the elements.  By using his magic, he assembles his enemies to take revenge on them, and in the process awakens in Miranda, his teenage daughter, her first experience of love.  The theme of reconciliation gives immense emotional force to Shakespeare’s farewell to the stage. 

Joining Ralph Fiennes, who leads the company as Prospero,areNicholas Lyndhurst as Trinculo, Chris Andrew Mellon (Sebastian), Michael Benz (Ferdinand), Tom Byam Shaw (Ariel), Jim Creighton (Adrian), Ian Drysdale (Francisco),Elisabeth Hopper (Miranda), Andrew Jarvis (Gonzalo), James Simmons (Alonso), Giles Terera (Caliban), Julian Wadham (Antonio) andClive Wood (Stephano) as well as Steven Butler, Eke Chukwu, Meline Danielewicz, Gisele EdwardsHayley Ellenbrook , Grahame Fox, Charlie Hamblett, Jami Reid-Quarrell and Itxaso Moreno.
