WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
NPR calls Old Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein "one of the country's leading Shakespeareans." Now Edelstein's work takes center stage in his Old Globe directorial debut with Shakespeare's most enchanting masterpiece, featuring a powerful musical score written expressly for The Winter's Tale by acclaimed classical composer Michael Torke. The Winter's Tale sweeps breathtakingly from tragedy to comedy and along the way visits kings and queens, dancing shepherds, a most extraordinary statue, and one notoriously hungry bear, before it reaches its stunning, magical conclusion.
