By William Shakespeare
CTL, Mark Taper Amphitheatre
Produced by Classical Theatre Lab in concert with Tree People, the conservation organization in residence at the beautiful outdoor Mark Taper Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, this production was set in the Restoration period; an age of greedy expansionism and frivolity. Shipwrecked on a magical island, each character is forced to confront the nature of power, the memory of grief and the choice of forgiveness.
Shakespeare's great final play, about a man hell bent on revenge against his brother, the usurper who stripped him of his throne, finds through love, nature, and the spirituality of the universe, the path to redemption. The shedding of the superficial trappings of wealth and power was a central metaphor in the vision for this production. Performed outdoors with delicate and original music composed by Susan Hurley, and evocative sound design by the multi award winning designer John Zelewski.
