See The Winter's Tale

An essential resource when studying any drama is a means of seeing it in performance. If no live performance is available, then DVDs or videos are an excellent resource. There is a BBC Shakespeare video of The Winter's Tale available, as well as later versions, one starring Anthony Sher and another starring Jeremy Kemp. A search of the web, for example by looking at Amazon, will readily show these – and audiotapes of the play.

Listen to The Winter's Tale

Audio CD or taped productions are also very useful, particularly to allow the listener to concentrate on the flow of the verse. There are several productions of The Winter's Tale in audio book form: one is made by the Arkangel Complete Shakespeare Company; another is a CD which comes with the New Variorum Edition; and there is also a Caedmon Shakespeare edition.
