WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Cymbeline, king of Britain, wants his daughter to marry the boorish Cloten, but the defiant Imogen has already wed the curiously named commoner, Posthumus Leonatus. Beside himself with rage, the king banishes Posthumus, who flees to Rome. Once there, he boasts to the unscrupulous Iachimo of his wife's fidelity; Iachimo wagers he can seduce Imogen (he can't, of course, as her virtue is beyond reproach). But he manages to fake it, unleashing a torrent of nearpreposterous events that take the action all over the European map.
