In his late romance The Winter's Tale, Shakespeare touches on several of his major themes: rivalry and jealousy, drive and intrigue, young love and late realization, forming a moving family story about deception, aberration and reconciliation. The fairy tale elements are portrayed with lifelike puppets which are played and spoken by the four actors from the Shakespeare Company Berlin. The "improbable" plot deals with the jealous King of Sicily who casts out his pregnant wife and banishes their newborn daughter. The queen collapses as if dead. Years later, father and daughter meet at the "Coast of Bohemia" and the statue of the Queen comes back to life. The sheep shearing festival is also quite amusing, which is unusual for fairy tales... but this, too, is Shakespeare.
