SOLD OUT PERFORMANCE!
THE TEMPEST, captured live at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Canada, pits the desire for revenge against the demands of love and asks if man is capable of creating a brave new world. The story focuses on Prospero (Christopher Plummer), the banished Duke of Milan. Marooned on a distant island with his daughter, Miranda (Trish Lindström), Prospero has spent twelve years perfecting his magic arts. Now, with the help of the spirit Ariel (Julyana Soelistyo), he raises a storm at sea, bringing within his grasp the enemies who robbed him of his dukedom.
The presentation will include a 20 minute captured live Q&A with Christopher Plummer, Des McAnuff hosted by Barry Avrich, Executive Producer of The Tempest live capture. The Q&A reunites Christopher Plummer and Des McAnuff in a lively and insightful discussion about the challenges of capturing live theater for cinema screens. Audience members ask some diverse questions covering the arc of Plummer's career, and whether (following The Sound Of Music) he will ever sing on screen again.
