About The Winter’s Tale

When jealousy tears a family apart, can love redeem all? Perhaps, when winter turns to spring.

Many years ago, in the grip of a jealous rage, King Leontes caused the death of his loyal wife Hermione and their young son. All seemed lost for him. But now, as spring blossoms, Leontes stands repentant before a statue of his queen, praying for a miracle of redemption.

A world premiere from ENO’s composer-in-residence Ryan Wigglesworth, The Winter‘s Tale a compelling new interpretation of Shakespeare’s tale of love, loss and reconciliation.

This new work will be directed by Olivier Award-winning actor Rory Kinnear, who brings his considerable Shakespearean experience (the National Theatre’s Hamlet and Iago) to the production.

The stellar cast includes three international singers whose careers were nurtured by ENO: Iain Paterson, Sophie Bevan and Leigh Melrose. They are joined by former ENO Harewood Artist Anthony Gregory and company favourite mezzo-soprano Susan Bickley. Ryan Wigglesworth also conducts.

Enjoyed every moment. Excellent production!

This is how theatre should be. I travelled from Germany just to see this and I am very happy with it. Perfect performance.

23 December 15

The production was great and really came alive. The toilet facilities were kind of school gym changing rooms, but the staff were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. Seats were a little short on legroom, but otherwise very good. A great night!

23 December 15

Wonderful famous drama played by world class actors. A real privelege to see such titans of the stage act out this drama in the most moving and well staged way imaginable.

23 December 15

A polished, professional production, albeit with some longuers during the folksy music and dance during the second half.
