Classical Sunday: Tchaikovsky’ Tempest Overture

Much like Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet or Hamlet Overtures, this was also inspired by one of Shakespeare’s plays:  The Tempest.  Just so happens that Prospero is my favorite Shakespearian character.

Tchaikovsky – The Tempest – Fantasy Overture

The featured image shows Marc Rylance as Prospero at the Globe Theater in London, UK, during the 2005 season.  A very impressive performance and no mistake.
