19:00, Thu 8th – Sat 10th March 2007 at Jesus College Chapel
Lent Week 7
'Be not afeared, the isle is full of noises...'
This term, the medieval setting of Jesus College Chapel will provide the perfect venue for a production of Shakespeare's 'The Tempest,' a play written at the height of the playwright's imaginative genius. Dreamlike and often obscure, 'The Tempest' is also a work brimming with beautifully noted characterization and windswept emotion, as well as forms of light entertainment rivalling the best of our modern Soap Operas! This production fully intends to embrace the unique space provided by Jesus Chapel; with shadow play, candlelight, blackout and onstage actor-musicians assisting the performance of this fantastical narrative.
