Director Elijah Moshinsky does an outstanding job with this production. Equally impressive is the cast. King Cymbeline's evil second queen forces the king to banish his daughter Imogen's husband Posthumus. While the queen tries to force Imogen to marry her own son, Posthumus flees to Rome. There he is tricked into believing Imogen has been unfaithful. Imogen disguises herself as a boy and flees the court.
