UNCSA: William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, or What You Will

April 11 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$20 – $25

The schools of Design and Production, Drama and Music at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) present “Twelfth Night, or What You Will,” a romantic comedy by William Shakespeare, which will feature original music made especially for this production by Music students.

The story follows twins Viola and Sebastian who are separated in a shipwreck, which is an apt metaphor for the storm of emotions that ensue. Viola dresses as a boy and goes to work for and falls in love with Duke Orsino, who is in love with the Countess Olivia. Orsino sends Viola to court Olivia in his stead, but Olivia falls in love with Viola instead of with the Duke. Sebastian, thought drowned, arrives, causing a flood of mistaken identity. He marries Olivia, who thinks he is Viola. Viola then reveals she is a girl and marries Orsino. While a love triangle is at the center of the whirlwind plot, the story delves deeply into the many expressions of love, with its joys and sorrows.
