“Tempest” is a collaboration of the Louisville Ballet and Kentucky Shakespeare as part of the 58th Shakespeare Festival in Central Park. With choreography by Roger Creel and the score by Scott Moore, it features the wizard Prospero (the Louisville Ballet’s Artistic and Executive Director Robert Curran is the wizard), his daughter Miranda and a magical storm. Step choreographers Christopher Malone and Antae Dickerson will create the sound of the tempestuous weather that’s central to the story. Food trucks open at 6:30 p.m. with the pre-show entertainment starting at 7:15 p.m.
