Advert Travel Gazette

A Chinese production of William Shakespeare’s play “The Tempest” will be shown at the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) from today until to August 15th.

The five-act play will be the NCPA’s another production of a Shakespeare masterpiece, following “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” “Hamlet” and “King Lear.”

The production uses a new translation from the Royal Shakespeare Company translation project, which explores a new direction for Shakespearean translations, making them more suitable for dramatic presentation, easing the reading for actors and helping the audience to better understand the plays, according to an NCPA statement.

The play will be directed by Tim Supple, a British drama and film director, and star veteran theatrical actor Pu Cunxin.
