Shakespeare’s plays have inspired composers for centuries, and none more so than The Tempest. A raging storm, a shipwreck, a usurping duke and an enchanted fairy: it has been fertile soil for composers including Honegger, Purcell, Sibelius and Tchaikovsky.

Conductor Umberto Clerici has curated this special performance with music by these great composers, presented alongside excepts from Shakespeare’s play performed by one of Australia’s greatest-ever actors, John Bell.

Just as Prospero cast his spells on the inhabitants of his desert island, so too will John Bell and the Sydney Symphony enchant the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall in this very special presentation.
