Tormented by sudden, unfounded jealousy, King Leontes of Sicilia accuses his faultless wife Hermione of adultery and banishes their baby daughter to the deserted shores of Bohemia. Sixteen years later, the now grown princess returns to her homeland to discover her true identity and reconnect with the father that cast her aside. One of Shakespeare's last plays, The Winter's Tale is a unique blend of political thriller, ancient mythology, and modern fairy tale, poignantly interweaving deeply human stories with magical elements -- the Oracle of Delphos, a ravenous bear, and a statue that comes to life. In a fast-paced new version, staged immersively and full of surprises, The Winter's Tale will be a unique theatergoing experience that entertains and enlightens, all through the transformative power of theater.
