The Royal Opera House presents Christopher Wheeldon's adaptation of Shakespeare’s late great romance The Winter’s Tale for The Royal Ballet.  First showcased in 2014, it is now widely judged to be a modern ballet classic after receiving praise from both critics and audiences alike for its intelligent method of telling this powerful story through exquisite dance

King Leontes is possessed by a mad jealousy, believing his beautiful pregnant wife Hermione to be having an affair with his boyhood friend King Polixenes. His actions threaten to rip both their families apart.

After the birth, Hermione’s baby daughter is abandoned and both Hermione and their son die of distress. The baby Perdita is rescued by a shepherd and grows up to fall in love with Florizel, the son of Polixenes and eventually the pair are reunited with the remorseful Leontes as Hermione returns from the dead leading to a powerful ending full of both forgiveness and reconciliation
