Leontes, King of Sicily, overcome by a sudden, maddening, unreasoning jealousy, sets out to destroy his marriage, family, and kingdom—all in the name of justice. One of the late great romances, an exploration of the worth and price of redemption, rich in love, music, and comedy with an unforgettable conclusion, The Winter’s Tale is William Shakespeare at his most affecting and most profound.
