Shakespeare’s The Tempest
Fenimore Art Museum’s Glimmer Globe Theatre is thrilled to present a summer of live theatre with William Shakespeare’s final fantastical adventure, The Tempest. Performances take place set against the backdrop of shimmering Otsego Lake at the Museum’s Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater.
In a new twist on this famous story, a motley crew of aeronauts finds their airship caught in a vicious tempest about to crash into an isolated and magical isle. Nearby, the vengeful wizard Prospero lives with his daughter Miranda, and two servants: Caliban, a native of the island, and Ariel, a spirit of the air. After Prospero reveals he and his magic were indeed the cause of the recent shipwreck, he recounts his tragic past to Miranda, setting in motion a chain of events that will change their lives, and the futures of all who call the island home.
The production is directed by Michael Henrici, who also stars as Caliban, alongside Lissa Sidoli as Prospero. The production also features Andie Alban, Tom Russo, J Lentner, Samantha Lizak, Andrew Munro, Colleen Bunn, Wriley Nelson, Peter Exton, Mark Murphy, Marisa Chism, Emily Begin, Kim Frederick, Dashiell Henrici, Tessa Davis, and Gavin Abrams.
Sponsored in part by The Clark Foundation, Melinda Hardin and Lou Allstadt, NYCM Insurance, Mr. Tom Morgan and Ms. Erna J. Morgan McReynolds, and Dr. Richard Sternberg.
