La Tempestad — The Tempest

By William Shakespeare
Adapted and translated by Orlando Hernández, with Tatyana-Marie Carlo and Leandro "Kufa" Castro
Directed by Christie Vela
March 27 – April 27, 2025

Decolonizing Shakespeare’s “brave new world

Shakespeare’s familiar story of magic, betrayal, comedy, and love is told through a compelling mix of The Bard’s classic English, translated Spanish dialogue, and projected subtitles so you can understand it all. La Tempestad — The Tempest purposefully weaves two languages to deconstruct the colonialist narratives, all while retaining the shipwreck, romance, magic, and fantasy that make Shakespeare’s final play so beloved. Originally presented in 2018 as a touring Teatro en El Verano production, La Tempestad is the first to transfer to Trinity Rep’s main stage!
