This electrifying version of “The Winter’s Tale” begins in the bleak mid-winter.  The story than rages across Europe, from court to country, from high tragedy to low comedy, across a time span of sixteen years. A fast-moving, action packed production, with atmospheric winter music.  A modern-day fairytale - a story of jealousy and paranoia but ultimately of redemption and joyous voices joined in winter song. Come and Join us for a celebration of Shakespeare and Wintertime. See below for rehearsal images.
