Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Bristol Old Vic present Twelfth Night, Shakespeare’s most sparkling cocktail of wit and deep feeling.
About Twelfth Night
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and Bristol Old Vic present
By William Shakespeare
directed by Wils Wilson
‘If music be the food of love, play on…’
In Shakespeare’s bittersweet comedy genders blur, boundaries are crossed and the world is turned upside down, all with music as the engine for these bacchanalian shenanigans. Director Wils Wilson saturates this tale of magic and wonder with all the psychedelia and bohemian delight of the ‘summer of love’.
Desire and grief collide in a heady cocktail as hidden emotions are aroused in a quartet of lovers. Meanwhile frivolity is edged with cruelty as the puritanical Malvolio, transformed for a time into a Technicolor alter-ego, is humiliated and abandoned; a man marooned, left behind by a generation he will never understand.
So join Viola (or is that her twin brother Sebastian?), Orsino, Olivia, Toby Belch and his sidekick Andrew Aguecheek, and the rest of the household for Shakespeare’s most sparkling cocktail of wit and deep feeling. It’s sure to be the party of the year!
Lyceum Associate Artist Wils Wilson’s vibrant production, performed by actor-musicians, will include a score by Welsh Music Prize winner, Meilyr Jones, whose bold and beautiful compositions intertwine early music with contemporary tones.
Co-produced with Bristol Old Vic
Production supported by The Lyceum Patrons
