Photo Flash: Kate Burton Stars in THE TEMPEST at The Old Globe

Prospera, the Duchess of Milan, lives in exile on a desert island after being thrown out of power by her wicked brother. For company, she has only her daughter Miranda, the spirits who are native to the island, and her beloved books. The books are the source of her dark magic, which she uses to lure her enemies to the island so she can exact revenge. But her plot could destroy Miranda's happiness, so Prospera must choose between her own anger and her daughter's future.

Under the direction of the renowned Joe Dowling, this enchanting fantasy kicks off the 2018 Shakespeare Festival with spectacle under the stars.

The Old Globe is located in San Diego's Balboa Park at 1363 Old Globe Way. Free parking is available throughout the park. Valet parking is also available ($14, advance reservation).
