Here are 2 justly famous speeches from Shakespeare’s last (& some say most perfect) play The Tempest. They were recorded during a live outdoor performance in September 2014.
1 “The cloud-capped towers” & “We are such stuff as dreams are made on”
Act IV, scene 1 (actual time – 1:50)
2 “Ye elves….” & “This rough magic I here abjure…”
Act V, scene 1 (actual time – 2:23)
You don’t need to know the story to hear the music in the verse!
