È la storia di due gemelli fra loro somigliantissimi, Viola e Sebastiano, che vengono separati da un naufragio presso le coste dell'Illiria. Viola si vestirà con abiti maschili e si farà chiamare Cesario, andando a lavorare come paggio presso il duca Orsino. Finirà con l'innamorarsi del suo padrone il quale ama, non riamato, la contessa Olivia, che si innamora del suo bel paggio Viola/Cesario. L'arrivo di Sebastiano complica ulteriormente la situazione ponendo però le basi di un suo felice scioglimento. Olivia infatti si innamora di Sebastiano, mentre Orsino, scoperta la vera identità del suo paggio, decide di sposare Viola.

I wish I could've seen what performances of this play were like in Shakespeare's time. Since women couldn't be on stage, men had to play the women's roles, which means that the guy playing Viola had to also dress up as a man while acting like a woman. You have to wonder if the audience ever really k Leggi tutto

Twins: Freaky or Fun? Twelfth Night is Shakespeare's answer to that age-old question. While I was listening to this, I had no idea that Viola & Sebastian were twins. As far as I knew, they were just siblings. But, apparently, they were (<--if I had read the blurb, I would have known this). And apparent Leggi tutto

The treatment of Malvolio is a little too cruel, Belch and Aguecheek are a little too coarse, and the resolution is a little too abrupt, and so this excellent Shakespearean comedy falls a little short of perfection. Still, the poetry about music and the songs themselves are wonderful, Viola and Orsi Leggi tutto
“Twelfth night” is probably the most well rounded of all the Shakespearean comedies I have read so far, both for its structure and thematic scope, which is close to the darkest side of his best tragedies. Evading the somewhat shallow hedonism of his earlier comedies, the perplexed reader encounters Leggi tutto

So often I find the origins of what has become trite and overdone, and yet Shakespeare was the fountain from which so much springs. This is especially true of Twelfth Night, it is apparent th Leggi tutto
“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” This was fun. The thing is that comedies are always more fun on a stage. Ultimately, so are tragedies. Shakespeare created a hilarious story of love, confusion and foolishness. There is a lot of genderbending an Leggi tutto
