A moment of jealousy and an act of anger lead to a lifetime of regret for Leontes, the rash king who destroys his family on a whim. But as time glides gently on, fate, love, and a few true friends, are ready to work wonders to restore happiness to his world. In 'The Winter's Tale', Shakespeare’s later-career wise and winsome fairytale, nothing is truly lost—certainly not love—if only we know where to seek it.
