The Winter’s Tale

Shakespeare’s tale of love and loss becomes compelling dance drama in Christopher Wheeldon’s ballet adaptation, with music by Joby Talbot.

King Leontes, possessed by a mad jealousy, believes his pregnant wife Hermione to be having an affair with his childhood friend King Polixenes.  His actions tear their families apart.

Hermione’s baby daughter is abandoned and Hermione and their son die of distress.  The baby Perdita, rescued by a shepherd, grows up to fall in love with Florizel, son of Polixenes.  The young couple is reunited with the remorseful Leontes and Hermione returns from the dead.
