Editorial Reviews

A young hunchback dwarf is sold by his father to the King of Spain, who uses him as entertainment for his daughter's birthday. The boy dances to the Infanta's amusement, and she is so delighted by his performance that she demands another. Thinking that she must love him, the dwarf goes in search of the Infanta, only to be confronted for the first time by his reflection, realizing that she was not in love with him, but instead laughing at him. Anthony Donovan performs with a regal restraint that marvelously sets the scene for Oscar Wilde's sad tale of cruelty.
