"A tilted white disc surrounded by an enveloping gauze...The storm is evoked through strobe lighting. Ariel slithers up and down the sides of the proscenium arch and at one point descends in a flurry of feathers. Prospero's acolytes are as shabbily dressed as their master." Michael Billington, Guardian 29.7.88
