A ballet based on Shakespeare's tragicomedy that focuses on King Leontes, who accuses his boyhood friend of betrayal, condemns his wife for adultery, and banishes his newborn daughter. The story is taken up fifteen years later when the wronged and innocent parties are re-united with the king who has since come to his senses and now lives in a state of perpetual grief and regret.
