Out of the blue, King Leontes of Sicily suffers from morbid jealousy. He suspects his heavily pregnant wife Hermione has been unfaithful and his best friend Polixenes has betrayed him. He rejects Hermione, threatens Polixenes and casts the newborn girl, who he does not recognize as his daughter, out to sea. Shakespeare's romance unfolds out of gloomy threats, fateful encounters and lucky coincidences and creates a fairytale picture in which all the characters' hidden relationships intertwine and dissolve peaceably in a theatrically magical ending.

The staging by Patricia Benecke portrays Shakespeare's late work as a journey of the castaway girl Perdita into a past that she does not know and in which her family history is hidden.
