Aquila Theater: Twelfth Night

“If music be the food of love, play on.” And so begins one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, a hilarious tale of love filled with shipwrecks, illusions, disguises, and deception. Viola, an aristocrat stranded in a strange land, disguises herself as a man named Cesario, and goes to work for Duke Orsino, who has long pined for Lady Olivia. Viola falls in love with the duke; meanwhile, Lady Olivia has fallen in love with Cesario. When Viola’s missing twin brother Sebastian appears, he is mistaken for Cesario, and confusion and hilarity ensue as passions and tempers flare. The gifted actors of this renowned British-American theater troupe bring the Bard’s brilliant poetry to life in this delightful production that includes an original musical score.
