Sir Ian McKellen, fresh from his performance as Gandalf in Lord of the Rings, is Prospero, and heads a strong cast in Shakespeare’s last great play. The wronged duke raises a tempest to shipwreck his old opponents on his island so that he can ensure justice is done. With Emilia Fox as Miranda, Scott Handy in the pivotal role of the sprite Ariel, and Ben Owukwe as Caliban, this new production, directed by John Tydeman, balances the magic and the earthiness, with music playing a key role.

Great Story, audio needs a little tweaking
Absolutely! It's a fairly entertaining story.
"I did not give the lie!"
No narrator. This is recorded as a stage play. You get a different actor for every part.
No extreme reaction. Of course I was already familiar with the story.
Be prepared to rewind every now and then to catch what was said when the actors whisper. Having a hard copy of the play would probably help. Of course, then you could just read it.
A stellar performance by a stunning cast
