William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night

Audiobook CD - 2003
Average Rating:
Rate this:

Shakespeare's most sophisticated comedy is a riotous tale of hopelessly unrequited passions and mistaken identity. Duke Orsino is in love with the noblewoman Olivia. She, however, has fallen for his servant Cesario, who is actually Viola, a woman disguised as a man, who loves Orsino: confusion is rife. Meanwhile, Olivia's arrogant steward Malvolio is cruelly tricked by her uncle Sir Toby Belch, his friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek, and the maidservant Maria into believing his mistress loves him.

Niamh Cusack is Viola, Jonathan Firth is Orsino, Amanda Root plays Olivia, Dinsdale Landen plays Sir Toby Belch, and Julian Glover is Malvolio.

It turns out that my second foray into a Shakespeare play was better than my first. Maybe this idea of listening to them all might not be such a far fetched plan.
I love Malvolio, his scenes are hilarious and the quote "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." is very amusing now that I know it's origin.
