A storm at sea brings love into the life of Pericles, Prince of Tyre; another snatches it away. This magical production of Shakespeare's epic tale follows a fairy-tale hero on a miraculous journey as fate guides the wandering hero to one of literature's most poignant reunions. Evan Buliung gives a sweeping performance, portraying the dashing young prince with verve and swagger, and taking him into his elder years with sorrowful tenderness. It is a story rarely told, and one you won't soon forget.
Filmed live on stage at the Stratford Festival as part of the 2016 Stratford Festival HD Series.
