Sure. Act I:
The ship wrecks, stranding the people on it on the island where Propero lives with Miranda, Caliban and the spirit Ariel. Ferdinand (from the ship, and originally from Naples) and Miranda fall in love.

Act II:
Sebastian, Antonio are talking when Ariel puts them to sleep.

Caliban runs into Trinculo and then Stephano. The two men get him drunk.
