However, Baptista is determined that her older sister, Katherina, known as “Kate the Cursed” for her wild temper must be married first. No man is Padua is willing to court the willful Katherine, until Petruchio, a gentleman of Verona in search of a suitable wife, arrives and sets out to woo her with a vengeance – and does.
