A perfect adaptation of Shakespeare's most perfect play.

Author: Alice Liddel ( from dublin, ireland
25 July 2001

Quite simply one of the best ever Shakespearean adaptations, because it achieves the near-impossible balance of comedy and melancholy that makes 'Twelfth Night' the favourite Shakespeare play of the discerning. More than either, 'Twelth night' makes tangible a feeling of longing, the exquisitely fine puppetry, the richly detailed mise-en-scene, the haunting Elizabethan pastiche score, all frame characters alone and desiring unrequited. this courtly anguish is satisfyingly countered by the cruel, physical humour of Toby and Aguecheeks' world, but even here, Malvolio's mirroring humiliation returns us to sadness.
