A masterpiece of spectacle, redemptive romance, comedy, poetry, song, and politics, 'The Tempest' (Shakespeare's last play) is regarded as the most lyrical, profound, and magical of his comedies.

Prospero, the exiled duke of Milan, has been on a remote island with their daughter Miranda for 12 years. They use their magical powers to conjure up a fearsome storm, so that their enemies, including their treacherous brother Antonio, are shipwrecked onto the island. There follows a play filled with murderous plots, drunken confusion, love, and redemption.

SBZ's new visually, aurally, and physically stunning multidisciplinary version of William Shakespeare's fantastical play turns the former church building of Hanover Hall into Prospero's enchanted island. Holding true to the original text and song, director Blaise Barham adds contemporary music, stunning costumes, physical theatre, with gender-blind casting, to put a new contemporary spin on this classic whilst further exploring themes of entrapment, letting go and freedom. With a performing cast of 25 actors, singers, dancers, and musicians the spectacle of the piece is brought to the fore.

Sahara BreeZe (SBZ) Productions was founded in 2019 as a touring theatre company and has been based in Dunedin since 2021. Since then, it has produced multiple shows such as Two by Jim Cartwright, Dracula the Bloody Truth by La Navette Bete, Wonderful by Richard Huber, Out at Sea by Slawomir Mrozek, The John Show by John Goudge, Shotglass Shorts Play Writing Competition, The Bear and The Cherry Orchard by Anton Chekhov and has received multiple nominations and awards most recently an 'Outstanding Contribution to Dunedin Theatre' in 2024.
