The Old Globe's 2018 Shakespeare Festival opens with "The Tempest."

Thrown out of power by his wicked brother, Prospero, the Duke of Milan, lives in exile on a desert island. For company, he has only his daughter Miranda, the spirits who are native to the island, and his beloved books. The books are the source of his dark magic, which he uses to lure his enemies to the island so he can exact revenge. But his plot could destroy Miranda’s happiness, so Prospero must choose between his own anger and his daughter’s future.

Under the direction of the renowned Joe Dowling, this enchanting fantasy will be performed under the stars.

The show runs June 17 to July 22, 2018. For tickets and additional details call (619) 234-5623.
