CYMBELINE, written in 1609 or 1610, was one of Shakespeare's last plays, and his second "Romance", a form combining
tragedy, comedy and masque, a form that he would bring to perfection in "The Tempest". A Romance, in addition to
the love story its name implies, also features fairy-tale-like elements: an evil stepmother, long lost children, transformations,
potions, apparitions and reconciliations.
