Why See Houston Ballet: Tempest?
AN ENCHANTING NEW TEMPEST
Lending itself wonderfully to the medium of dance, Shakespeare's island-bound drama comes to Houston in 2017 in this magical ballet adaptation and American premiere by Sally Beamish. Enthralling and immersive, The Tempest is the story of shipwreck and sorcery on a spell-binding isle, ruled over by the vengeful marooned Prospero, and his determination.
Shakespeare's final play, this strange tale is full of fairies, monsters and confused sailors who find themselves caught up in the most peculiar circumstances. Composer Sally Beamish has created a vivid musical landscape in which you'll lose yourself willingly as David Bintley's mesmerising choreography conjures up a the Bard's bewitching words.
