This opening scene contains exhibition, as the wailing tempest hurling the little ship about and debilitating to execute the characters before the play has even started. Shakespeare’s stage would have been totally uncovered, without numerous physical signs that the performers should be on a ship, a great deal less a ship amidst a lashing tempest.
