In the household of Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged, one by the lovesick lord Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of their steward, the pompous Malvolio.
When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows.
Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Shakespeare’s laugh-filled Twelfth Night combines low pranks with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with sublime poetry and exquisite songs.
