The Winter's Tale DVD (The Royal Ballet) 2014


  • Christopher Wheeldon draws on the same music and design team used for the hugely popular Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to create an evocative reimagining of The Winter's Tale, Shakespeare's enduring story of jealousy, compassion and forgiveness. Featuring the outstanding original cast that includes Ed Watson, Lauren Cuthbertson, Zenaida Yanowsky and Federico Bonelli, The Winter's Tale has become a classic of modern ballet.
