The Tempest at Battery Park

The Tempest at Battery Park

New York Classical Theatre will present a free outdoor production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, transforming the Lower Manhattan waterfront into Prospero’s fantastical enchanted isle.

From July 11th to August 4th, the acclaimed company will bring its signature “Panoramic Theatre” staging style to Battery Park, with Prospero, Caliban, and company raging against the backdrop of Castle Clinton, the Statue of Liberty, and the dramatic sunsets behind New York Harbor.

The Tempest is an epic tale of magic, revenge, and redemption led by Prospero, a magician who whips up a raging storm that delivers his duplicitous brother to his shore. New York Classical Theatre’s production locates the story in the Victorian era, when the onset of the Industrial revolution inspired a countervailing renaissance in spiritualism and a penchant for all things occult.

Select performances will be preceded by the company’s popular pre-performance family workshops. Open and free to the public, the workshops guide children (7-11) and their families  through games and exercises that help them better understand the play. For dates and times, please see above.

Performances: Tuesday through Sunday, July 11–August 4 at 7 p.m.

Family Workshops: July 20, 21, 27 & 28 at 5 p.m.
