“Twelfth Night” on Twelfth Night
Saturday, Jan. 5 is Twelfth Night, both a religious and secular holiday with many origins and traditions.
At 1:30 p.m. on Twelfth Night 2019, we will be showing a “pop-rock” version of Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” – which was filmed live during the Stratford Festival of Canada’s 2011 season.
Directed by Des McAnuff, it stars Brian Dennehy, Ben Carlson, Sara Topham, Stephen Ouimette, Tom Rooney, and many more festival regulars. McAnuff and Michael Roth composed a contemporary score; however, the lyrics are by Shakespeare and are all in “Twelfth Night” (a poem by Christopher Marlowe and Sir Walter Raleigh was also set to music for this production).
Shakespeare wrote the play as a Twelfth Night’s entertainment for the close of the Christmas season. Please join us for our own Twelfth Night celebration. It’s Shakespeare like you’ve never seen.
