Act 3 Scene 3 – The banquet

Ariel tricks Alonso, Sebastian, Antonio and Gonzalo into believing they have seen a wonderful banquet. He appears to them as a harpy and reminds them of their sins.

This video shows a group of stage designers pitching ideas on how to stage this scene. As you watch, consider the following:

  • how you would make an entire banquet appear and then disappear
  • what modern special effects you could use
  • how you could make sure the banquet would entice and amaze the noblemen and the audience
