The Tempest reflects Shakespeare's mature genius, with its story of innocence tempered by intrigue, hilarity bounded by melancholy. Audiences the world over still thrill to see The Tempest's dark comedy and magical fantasy.Sir Michael Redgrave and Vanessa Redgrave helped to build one of England's foremost theatrical families, a tradition that Ms. Redgrave continues today.
