A musical by Howard Goodall based on a book by William Shakespeare. Additional material by Andrew Keates.

A Winter’s Tale was commissioned by The Sage Gatehead and the first performance was directed by Nick Stimson on 7-11 December 2005.


THE SHOW

A Winter’s Tale is Goodall’s musical take on the play by William Shakespeare. The 2012 production at the Landor Theatre won the Off West End Theatre Award for Best New Musical.

‘Like the dreaming the show was written specifically for young people to perform, but stands up beautifully now for a more experienced cast, too, and yields darker, richer musical and dramatic colours in the process.

It’s very typical of the composer - to my mind (and ears) the best contemporary British composer of musicals we have - to take a problem play and turn it into a glorious opportunity.’
