The Tempest
12:00, 19:00. Ballet in three acts. Libretto after William Shakespeare's play. Presented with one interval. Choreographer: Vyacheslav Samodurov. Music Director: Pavel Klinichev. Set Designer: Aleksei Kondratyev. Costume Designer: Igor Chapurin. Prospero, the deposed duke of Milan, watches with his daughter Miranda as a tempest rages. She begs him to use his magical powers to stop the storm. A ship is wrecked, and the passengers seem to drown, but Prospero shows Miranda that this has been an illusion of his making, and he has caused the men to land safely on the island. Twelve years ago, the men usurped Prospero’s dukedom and put him and the infant Miranda to sea in a rotten boat, which landed on the island. The exiled Prospero then resorted to his books on the magic arts and took two servants: Ariel, an airy spirit, and Caliban, the deformed son of a witch. Prospero causes Miranda to sleep, and Ariel and Caliban appear. While Prospero favors Ariel over Caliban and has promised to free him once his plans for revenge have been executed, these two servants represent the polarities of Prospero’s powers. As Prospero observes his enemies wandering, lost, on the island, he meditates on what he has done and the revenge that he plans.
