Subject:        Winters Tale and the Bear

I am interested to learn if there is any record of a live bear being
used in a production of The Winters Tale. I have a record of Anthony
Quayle reverting to the traditional procedure of using a live bear in
1948 but can find no description or whether his experiment was a
success, nor any evidence of a "traditional" performance. If you could
help I should be delighted. Patrick Melville
