Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. He is comforted by his daughter Miranda and served by his spirit Ariel and his deformed slave Caliban. When Prospero raises a storm to wreck this perfidious brother and his confederates on the island, his long contemplated revenge at last seems within reach.

Imbued with a spirit of magic and the supernatural, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s late great masterpiece of forgiveness, generosity and enlightenment.

The Globe on the Big Screen is the definitive Shakespeare experience. Get closer to the action than ever before, experience the magic of the world famous Globe that yearly draws thousands of theater lovers from around the world. Now you have the opportunity to share that unique magic and spirit of inclusiveness that is – a Globe performance.

When three witches tell Macbeth that he is destined to occupy the throne of Scotland, he and his wife choose to become the instruments of their fate and to kill the first man standing in their path, the virtuous King Duncan. But to maintain his position, Macbeth must keep on killing – first Banquo, his old comrade-in-arms; then, as the atmosphere of guilt and paranoia thickens, anyone who seems to threaten his tyrant’s crown.

From its mesmerizing first moments to the last fulfillment of the witches’ prophecy, Shakespeare’s gripping account of the profoundest engagement with the forces of evil enthralls the imagination.
