“Aquila’s productions are beautifully spoken, dramatically revealing and crystalline in effect.”
- The New Yorker
The acclaimed Aquila Theatre will stage one of Shakespeare's funniest and most charming comedies, Twelfth Night.
Written in 1600 and set against a background of romance and mystery, this hilarious story of identical twins and mistaken identity, set in the mystical world of Illyria, explores the universal themes of love and all its ambiguous effects on human behavior.
Aquila takes this great Shakespearean masterpiece and infuses it with their unique brand of innovative and exciting theatricality. Aquila's creative team frees the essential spirit of the play in a production that is both faithful to Shakespeare and relevant and accessible to a modern audience. Although contemporary , the show still encompasses the shipwrecks, duels, love and jealousy, disguises, suspicion, and ultimate reconciliation of Shakespeare's superb text. Aquila's excellent British / American ensemble of professional actors will bring their unique experience, dedication and creativity to major stages across America.
This new production promises to thrill and enchant. With a cast of superb performers, a remarkable original musical score, Aquila's much admired brand of innovative design and unique physical approach will undoubtedly be an experience not to be missed!
