“It is a 17th century tale of a diabolical steward named Golo, who schemes to steal the wife of his lord, Count Sylkfrid, but is undone by the testimony of a ghost and by a white doe who reunites the couple on a hunting trip.”
This story fit in quite nicely to our study of Shakespeare. It had the royal lineage, the tragic feel of love gone wrong, and was written in the same time period as the Shakespearean plays.
It was beautiful and beautifully performed. It was moving and memorable. We loved it.
