The Story of two Kings, Leontes and Polixenes, and two lands, Sicilia and Bohemia. Leontes of Sicilia imprisons his Queen Hermione and orders the death of his newborn child when he is convinced that Hermione has had an affair with the visiting King Polixenes of Bohemia. The newborn is instead taken in secret to Bohemia and rescued and raised by a Shepherdess.
16 years later in Bohemia, the baby has blossomed into the beautiful Perdita, with whom Prince Florizel, son of Polixenes, falls in love. No one knows Perdita’s true origins so Polixenes is not happy when he discovers his only son wishes to marry the daughter of a Shepherd!
Florizel and Perdita escape to Sicilia, where Perdita’s true identity is revealed and her family reunited.
