When Costume Designer David Israel Reynoso first began working on The Old Globe's "The Tempest," he wanted to bring an imaginative and surreal side to the classic play. The Shakespeare play follows Prospera, the Duchess of Milan, who lives in exile on a desert island after being thrown out of power by her wicked brother. Reynoso wanted the costumes to be both straight-laced and imaginative. "I feel like it's important people look at the clothes and feel like they could be the ones landing on this island," Reynoso said. "There will be a quality in which you feel like you can recognize yourself in this. And yet, it'll feel a bit like you've landed in a dream. That there's an aspect to it that feels like you've been transported." In these renderings from Costume Designer David Israel Reynoso, get a first look at the mystical and magical world of "The Tempest."
