The story takes place on an enchanted island to which the sorcerer Prospero, once a Duke in Italy, and his daughter Miranda have been exiled by Prospero’s wicked brother Antonio and the King of Naples, Alonso. Prospero takes revenge on the two and, with the help of his airy spirit Ariel and some powerful magic, creates a violent storm that shipwrecks them and several others on the island. A series of mystical events arouse feelings of guilt and remorse in Antonio and Alonso, who then agree to restore Prospero’s Dukedom. After this happy reconciliation, Ariel transports everyone home to Italy, and all ends well.
