Goodbye to The Tempest starring Ralph Fiennes

This sensational production closed yesterday (Saturday night). My feature on this Tempest is here:

In tribute, I will close with my favourite lines from the play, which are these:

Act 4 Scene 1

PROSPERO
Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
