Henry Purcell The Tempest
BRIEF SYNOPSIS

Two devils sing of the corrupting nature of ambition. The tempest is summoned up by an incantation to ‘arise, ye subterranean winds’. Ariel dances, then sings three songs, beginning with the famous ‘Full Fathom Five’. After Dorinda has sung to her ‘Dear pretty youth’, Amphitre and Neptune call on Aeolus to cease the wind that is causing the storm. As the wind dies down, all the characters join in a rejoicing chorus, ‘No stars again shall hurt you’.
