In very short:

Set on an Island:

Usurpated Duke of Milan Prospero and daughter Miranda had been shipwrecked on the island 12 years ago.
They are accompanied by the spirit Ariel and mutant villainous Caliban, who had been saved by Prospero and had been made servants.

As a magician Propero learns about the returning wedding party passing by closely:
his brother and now Duke of Milan Antonio,
King Alonso of Naples who helped Antonio overturning Prospero´s government,
Alonso´s brother Sebastian,
Alonso´s son Ferdinand,
and Alonzo´s advisor Gonzalo

Prospero creates with Ariels help a storm to shipwreck the wedding party on the island and split them in three groups (all others are made fall asleep):

a)Ferdinand finds his safe way quicky to Miranda and they fall in love immediately -> Prospero is delighted but wants to tests Ferdinand's honesty and forces him to serve him at first until he finally agrees to their marriage.

b)Antonio, Alonso, Sebastian, Gonzalo et al. -> Antonio and Sebastian try to kill Alonso and Gonzalo to make Sebastian King of Naples, but are caught in the act, Ariel interferes. They learn about Prospero's presence on the island and make their way to him.

c)Jester Trinculo and drunken butler Stephano meet Caliban who persuades them to plan to kill Prospero, but later they are too terrified of spirits to pursue the murder.

All meet in the end: Alonso learns that his lost son is alife and going to marry Miranda on their return in Naples, he is forgiven as Antonio and Sebastian are. After preparing the weather for a safe ship's voyage home Ariel finally is set free and Prospero destroys his magic devices.
He asked the audience to set him free with their applause.
