In The Winter’s Tale, a madly jealous king condemns his innocent wife and his best friend to death. A baby princess is abandoned in a distant shore where she is adopted by a kindly shepherd. A prince disguises himself as a peasant to woo a lovely maiden. The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare is a fairy tale filled with love and loss, innocence and betrayal, the power of truth and an opportunity for redemption.
