Subject:      Hermione?

Like David Evett, I found the ending of the Stratford ONT production of "The 
Winter's Tale" in 1986 (?) with Goldie Semple and Colm Feore to be memorable and 
mesmerizing. And an earlier production in the late 1970s had a similar powerful 
impact at the ending with a similar sense of full reunion. Brian Bedford was 
quietly paranoid and later penitent as Leontes, and Margot Dionne a powerful 
Hermione. Martha Henry was Paulina in that production, but not I think in the 
later one.
