Episode Summary

EDIT
The Tempest
AIRED:
Prospero, a former Duke of Milan whose brother stole his dukedom, is now a sorcerer living on a remote island with his daughter Miranda, a slave called Caliban, and some fairies. He uses his magical powers to arrange for his enemies (including King Alonso of Naples and Prospero's brother Antonio, the false Duke of Milan) to land on his island, believing they are shipwrecked. Young Miranda falls in love with Alonso's son, Prince Ferdinand. Eventually Prospero reveals himself to the visitors, and Alonso sensibly restores Prospero's dukedom. For more, see Recap.moreless

      • Ariel: (singing)

        Full fathom five thy father lies,
        Of his bones are coral made.
        Those are pearls that were his eyes,
        Nothing of him that doth fade
        But doth suffer a sea-change
        Into something rich and strange.


      • Prospero: My library was dukedom large enough.

      • Prospero:
        Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
        As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
        Are melted into air, into thin air,
        And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
        The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces,
        The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
        Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
        And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
        Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
        As dreams are made on, and our little life
        Is rounded with a sleep.

        Miranda (to Ferdinand):
        I would not wish
        Any companion in the world but you.
