King Alonso of Naples and his entourage sail home for Italy after attending his daughter’s wedding in Africa. They encounter a violent storm – a Tempest – and are washed ashore on a strange island inhabited by the magician Prospero who deliberately conjured up the storm.
Prospero and Miranda live in a cave on the island which is also inhabited by Ariel, a sprite who carries out the bidding of Prospero, and the ugly, half-human Caliban.
A number of plots against the main characters fail thanks to the magic of Prospero; the Tempest is eventually calmed.
