The Royal Ballet: The Winter's Tale

Edinburgh Digital Entertainment Festival

Cinema screening of live performance. Based on Shakespeare's play, the story follows the destruction of marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love. It is powerful material for ballet with a story that allows for the portrayal of intense emotions between and within the characters, and the opportunity for the company to create not just new central characters but the whole world around them.
