In Writer, Producer, and Director Julie Taymor's version of "The Tempest", the main character is now a woman named Prospera. Going back to the sixteenth or seventeenth century, women practicing the magical arts of alchemy were often convicted of witchcraft. In Taymor's version, Prospera is usurped by her brother & sent off with her four-year daughter on a ship. She ends up on an island; it's a tabula rasa: no society, so the mother figure becomes a father figure to Miranda. This leads to the power struggle & balance between Caliban & Prospera; a struggle not about brawn, but about intellect.

In Shakespeare's fantastical thriller the magician Prospero orchestrates spirits, monsters, a grief-stricken king, a wise old councillor, two treacherous brothers & a storm at sea into a fantastical conspiracy bringing banishment, sorcery & shipwreck into the lives of two hapless lovers to stir & seal their fate. Here Prospero takes female form as Prospera, giving her journey of vengeance & self-discovery a wholly new resonance. As Prospera breaks her magical staff against an entrancing volcanic landscape at the end of her heroic quest, this poignant story of love & forgiveness translates into a riveting & filmic mystical tale, for our own times.
