Prefaces to Shakespeare | The Tempest

The Tempest

A personal introduction to The Tempest by actor Michael Hordern, who played Prospero in the BBC TV Shakespeare production. "I would wish an audience watching The Tempest just to let the delight, the language, the music and the magic of it wash over them - to feel the play. Thinking about it is best left till afterwards."
