The Tempest

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Joe Dowling

Thrown out of power by his wicked brother, Prospero, the Duke of Milan, lives in exile on a desert island. For company, he has only his daughter Miranda, the spirits who are native to the island, and his beloved books. The books are the source of his dark magic, which he uses to lure his enemies to the island so he can exact revenge. But his plot could destroy Miranda’s happiness, so Prospero must choose between his own anger and his daughter’s future. Under the direction of the renowned Joe Dowling, this enchanting fantasy kicks off the 2018 Shakespeare Festival with spectacle under the stars.

Del Mar Racing Season

Jul 18 - Sep 3, 2018

San Diego horse racing takes place where the "turf meets the surf" at the Del Mar Racetrack. Fans flock to the track each summer to wager on their favorite horses during the popular, annual Del Mar Thoroughbred Club racing season, mid-July - early-September. Be part of the magic and nostalgia of this long-time horse race tradition dating back to 1937 when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and Seabiscuit won by a nose in the infamous race in 1938. This season features the nation's top race horses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.

The races run five days weekly, except Monday and Tuesday.

Horse racing at Del Mar happens Wednesday through Sunday, with post time for the first race on most days at 2:00 PM. On Fridays first post is at 4:00 PM.
