Taymor's Tempest

It's finally here.  With Helen Mirren as "Prospera."  Here's the trailer...

Certainly "rich and strange" looking, eh? And some cool casting (especially Russel Brand and Djimon Hounsou.)

The "Prospera" idea is hardly Taymor's.  I know Vanessa Redgrave did it at the Globe in London, and Blair Brown here at McCarter for director Emily Mann.  Can anyone verify who was the first to think of it?
