An irrational and unfounded jealousy has consumed Leontes, the king of Sicilia. Convinced his wife Hermione has been carrying on an affair, he unleashes his rage upon her and their newborn child, whom he banishes to the wilderness. The consequences of his actions unfold over many years, in ways no one, most of all Leontes could have anticipated. Shakespeare's magical tale of wrath and redemption, of loves lost and then found is a sure way to warm the heart on a cold winter's night.
