“If music be the food of love, play on!” Shakespeare’s classic love story of mistaken identity gets a modern twist this winter at Bard in the Valley! With live music, multi-media projections, and a host of colorful characters, this fun adaptation of Twelfth Night: Or What you Will seeks to answer the age-old question of “What is Love?”
While fleeing their war-torn home country, Viola and her twin Sebastian are separated and shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria; an island community largely inhabited by wealthy celebrities, including the young movie star Orsino, famous for his portrayal as “The Duke”.
To avoid deportation, Viola disguises herself and gets a job working for Orsino, whom she quickly falls in love with. Orsino, however, is in love with social-media influencer and fashion icon, Olivia. Olivia, meanwhile, is mourning the tragic loss of her brother and is not interested in being courted, until she meets Viola (disguised as Cesario) and also falls in love!
This classic love triangle scenario is further complicated by the arrival of Sebastian, whose striking resemblance to Viola causes a flood of mistaken identities.
