Shakespeare revisited… The Tempest
An absolute treat it was. Although backseat, and I mean backseat, was sitting right at the back in the top and last row. The good thing was that the seats was not the moulded type, but a cushioned back and the acoustics was excellent so even the back seat was good (and take note, for the budget traveller, it suited me perfect). Full score for the cast for putting and fantastic and memorable performance. Considering they probably do it hundreds of times, the performance was enthusiastic and spirited. Within the play itself it reminds me of the movie “Shakespeare in Love” and one feels the enthusiasm of Joseph Fiennes. One feels the energy and passion Shakespeare has written the play with as it is acted (brought to life) on stage.
I applaud the efforts of the Royal Shakespeare Company for putting up such brilliant performance and the dedication. If you can, do yourself the favour, brave the masses and go and see for yourself!
