Notes

Stills
"We are in the 1860s, so Sicilia becomes a privileged, pre-Raphaelite world of pseudo-medievalism; which supposedly makes it all the more shocking that madness erupts into this Burne-Jones paradise when Leontes falsely accuses his wife, Hermione, of adultery. If Sicilia is a poisoned Camelot, Bohemia becomes a working-class Blackpool in wakes week complete with Morris dancers and tented booths" [Michael Billington, The Guardian, 31 January 2013).
