Summary

Twelfth Night, nowadays one of Shakespeare's best-loved and most-admired comedies, was not always so regarded: Samuel Pepys saw the play three times in the 1660s and judged it 'silly'. Modern audiences, critics, and directors seem better attuned to its delicate counter pointing of romance and realism, to its ambivalent ending, and to the poetic suggestiveness of Feste's songs.

With this in mind, sit back and enjoy this lively performance, featuring the voices of such esteemed Shakespearean actors as Stella Gonet (Viola) and Gerard Murphy (Sir Toby Belch), accompanied by a full cast.

Irritated

I really disliked this recording as the music at the start makes it hard to hear what the actors are saying. After listening a few times, I could t make out the first few sentences and has to buy a paper copy of the book just so I could figure out what was said. Very irritating.
