Episode Summary

The Tempest
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
