The Tempest Act 1

Storyboard Text

  • You will not take Miranda's virginity before the wedding!
  • Everything will come to an end.
  • *Screams*
  • Prospero acknowledges that he has been testing Ferdinand and Miranda’s love and now that he knows Ferdinand really loves Miranda, he is willing to bless the wedding. But not before he warns Ferdinand against taking Miranda’s virginity before the wedding. To celebrate the engagement and showoff his powers, Iris, Juno and Ceres appear to perform.
  • Prospero suddenly stops the dancing when he remembers the drunken trio plan to kill him. He then comforts the disappointed couple by reminding him that everything will comes to an end and so he send Ferdinand and Miranda away so that he can come up with a plan. Prospero instructs Ariel to leave new clothing on a tree to tempt them.
  • Soon the trio appear with a stench and wet. Stephano and Trinculo cheered when they see clothes hanging nearby. They ignore Caliban’s plea to continue on their mission and his warnings that their hesitation will lead Prospero to catch them. At that moment, Prospero and Ariel enter with the spirits disguised as hunters and hounds. The three flee with the spirits in pursuit.
