BBC Music - The Tempest
The content for "The Tempest" is structured on the eight songs to learn.
Each song appears on its own dedicated page and includes the following resources:
- Part 1 - Rock the ship
Prospero and his daughter, Miranda, live in a cave on a desert island but they weren't born there. Once Prospero had been the Duke of Milan but twelve years ago he and Miranda were cast out to sea in a leaky boat full of holes. They were meant to die, but who would want to kill them?
- Part 2 - Set me free
Prospero has some explaining to do! Miranda wants to know why he's almost killed the passengers of a passing ship. Meanwhile Ariel is feeling moody - yearning for the day, long promised, when Prospero will set him free.
- Part 3 - Full fathom five
Prospero and Ariel - both invisible - travel around the island to inspect those washed ashore. The first group - the courtiers - are bickering and King Alonso believes his son, Ferdinand, to be dead. Elsewhere on the island Ferdinand is actually alive, but believes his father to have drowned
- Part 4 - Toledo steel
King Alonso of Naples and his old advisor, Gonzalo, are asleep. Antonio (who is Prospero's brother) and Sebastian (who is Alonso's brother) are awake and plotting to kill them - with Toledo steel!
- Part 5 - Barracuda
Prospero's slave creature, Caliban, meets up with comedy duo Trinculo and Stephano. It's not long before the three of them are planning to kill Prospero and take over the island, with Stephano dreaming of marrying Miranda...
- Part 6 - Brave new world
Miranda and Ferdinand meet and fall hopelessly in love. Miranda is the most beautiful woman Ferdinand has ever seen. Ferdinand is the...only man Miranda has ever seen (apart from her dad, Prospero, of course).
- Part 7 - Spellbound
Prospero's enemies are in his power, but he is full of questions. Should they be punished or forgiven? Perhaps it is time to bring his plans to a close and to return home to Milan once more.
- Part 8 - Sea change
The finale. Will Ariel now be free? Will Antonio get what he deserves? Will Ferdinand and Alonso finally be reunited? Will Ferdinand and Miranda marry? What of Caliban? And will Prospero return home, Duke of Milan once more?
