In two days, the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis starts its run of The Winter's Tale, and I couldn't be more thrilled.
Among the Guthrie's recent stellar productions are Macbeth (for which, q.v.), Two Gentlemen of Verona (for which, q.v.), and A Midsummer Night's Dream (for which, q.v.). Guthrie productions are always stunning, interesting, and well-acted. The vitality of the performances fills the incredible performance space. I anticipate great things for this season's Winter's Tale.
And that's one reason why I'm pleased beyond belief to extend this generous offer to Bardfilm's readers on behalf of The Guthrie Theatre:
READERS OF BARDFILM SAVE 50% ON ANY TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY PERFORMANCE OF THE WINTER’S TALE IN FEBRUARY!
Re-Imagine Once Upon a Time . . .Tragedy collides with comedy in this fairy tale that balances two worlds filled with music and dance: Sicilia resembling the Kennedy-era White House, and Bohemia capturing the freedom of rural Minnesota. Suspecting his wife has committed adultery with his childhood friend and consumed with unfounded jealousy, King Leontes of Sicilia abandons her and their newborn child, turning their royal dream into a nightmare. Sixteen years later the child has grown into a free-spirited young woman in Bohemia and unknowingly falls in love with the son of her father’s friend. But a twist of fate leads to long-kept secrets revealed and the family is reunited in a homecoming like never imagined.
