Twelfth Night, or What You Will

Det Kongelige Teater


Mmmm. There’s emotional intoxication, repressed
desire, gender play and desperate infatuation to be
found in Shakespeare’s erotic comedy.
After a violent shipwreck the young Viola is cast ashore
on an unknown coast in the country of Illyria. Crushed
by grief over the loss of her twin brother, whom she
believes has drowned, she disguises herself as a man.
Under the name Cesario she becomes a servant to
Duke Orsino and must suppress her immediate
infatuation with the nobleman when she is given the
task of passing on his courtship of Countess Olivia. In a
twist of irony, the countess eventually falls in deeper
and deeper in love with Cesario, who indeed is Viola
dressed in menswear.
