The Aquila Theatre will bring its innovative style and dynamic physical approach to Shakespeare’s famous magical tale of forgiveness and enlightenment. The New York Times has described Aquila’s productions as “Gleefully engaging…almost unbearable fun…directed with inspiration” The New Yorker has raved “Beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.” With an ensemble of superb performers and Aquila’s exhilarating execution, this new production of The Tempest is sure to delight. Aquila Theatre’s mission is to make classical works accessible to the greatest number. A play becomes ‘classical’ because we recognize that after a time it transcends the original culture it was created for. It retains the power to provoke the central question of what it means to be human. As a company dedicated to the classics, we feel a responsibility to acknowledge and explore newfound classical works. Founded in London in 1991 by Peter Meineck, Aquila is now based in New York City.
