Prospero's Island
Beyond Shakespeare. At the bottom of the world. At the limits of love. The world premiere of Prospero's Island, a major new chamber opera by acclaimed creators Allen Shearer and Claudia Stevens, is set for March 25, 2023 at San Francisco's Herbst Theater. A production of Ninth Planet and InTandem, the opera, based on The Tempest, is about power, deception, terrible secrets and new beginnings. With stunning imagery and richly orchestrated music, Prospero's Island brings Shakespeare's great play to new life, its story transported to the Falkland Islands in the 1950's and action that takes place from dawn to dusk on one momentous day. Audiences will meet the all-powerful Prospero, reimagined as a war criminal with a dark past; paratrooper Andy and lovely Mandy as they fall in love (but is it magic or true?); teenage Caliban, as he tussles with the island's cheeky penguins; the comedy team of paratroopers Steffi and Trish; and the faithful Ariel, half bird and half woman, whose devotion to Prospero is put to the ultimate test. What will these newly imagined beings do when they learn the truth?

Ninth Planet is a new music ensemble and service organization dedicated to the commissioning, performance and furthering of new music, especially the works of young composers and artists and those from underrepresented communities. Created in 2019 as a merger of Wild Rumpus and Composers, Inc., Ninth Planet continues the traditions of both organizations by commissioning new works, offering the Suzanne and Lee Ettelson Composer’s Award instituted by Composers, Inc., and performing existing, innovative pieces that stretch the genre’s limits. Concert programs represent a range of styles, with emphasis on local composers, women and LGBTQA+ composers, and composers of color. Ninth Planet prioritizes close interaction with our guest composers, seeking to invite them into our rehearsal process and the thoughtful presentation of their work in concert. Ninth Planet is a registered not-for-profit organization.
