    Description

    Shakespeare's most sophisticated comedy is a riotous tale of hopelessly unrequited passions and mistaken identity. Duke Orsino is in love with the noblewoman Olivia. She, however, has fallen for his servant Cesario, who is actually Viola, a woman disguised as a man, who loves Orsino: Confusion is rife. Meanwhile, Olivia's arrogant steward Malvolio is cruelly tricked by her uncle Sir Toby Belch, his friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek, and the maidservant Maria into believing his mistress loves him.

    Niamh Cusack is Viola, Jonathan Firth is Orsino, Amanda Root plays Olivia, Dinsdale Landen plays Sir Toby Belch, and Julian Glover is Malvolio.

    I thought Hamlet was my favorite...nay! It is now Twelfth Night. Shakespeare was a genius.

    Not divided by Act and Scene

    This dramatized version is excellent and well worth listening to. However, I gave this 2 stars because the recording is not divided by act and scene; this makes it very difficult to choose sections to play to a class. When I’ve checked the CDs out from the library, they have all been divided by Act and Scene, so I expected the same from Audible.

    If you be not mad, be gone

    "If you be not mad, be gone; if you have reason, be brief."
    - William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

    I liked it, but didn't love it.

    Positives: I always like Shakespeare's gender benders. The Bard enjoys not playing characters straight. He doesn't want a love story or even a love triangle, Shakespeare wants to explore all the tangents, the lines, and the angles of love's many geometries. He is a great experimenter of the human soul. He is the Faraday of romance, unsatisfied until he has teased out all the attractions and repulsions possible.

    Negatives: I'm not a fan of Shakespeare's musical comedies. I don't include A Midsummer Night's Dream on this list, because I consider that play to be one of Shakespeare's great LYRICAL plays (along with Richard II and Romeo and Juliet). Anyway, anytime Shakespeare's actors start singing and dancing, I want to use that time/space to grab a popcorn or pee. Just not my jam.

    Favorite Lines:

    "If music be the food of love, play on." (Act 1, Scene 1)

    “Better a witty fool, than a foolish wit.” (Act 1, Scene 5)

    “Well, God give them wisdom that have it; and those that are fools, let them use their talents.” (Act 1, Scene 5)

    “Many a good hanging prevents a bad marriage.” (Act 1, Scene 5)

    “Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” (Act 2, Scene 5)

    “I say there is no darkness but ignorance.” (Act 4, Scene 2)

    Classic

    Shakespeare is a classic. I absolutely enjoyed this take on it. The full cast was amazing and they each did a great job. I felt like I was there.

    Hilarious deception by Shakespeare

    Performances were excellent. The production allows you to follow the action though knowing the general plot is very helpful. Overall highly recommended.

    Twelfth Night

    The performance was EXCELLENT. One of the best Shakespeare ensembles I've heard to date. The Fool, Olivia, Andrew Aguecheek were all brilliant.
