"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." - William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night
Shakespeare’s funniest and most charming comedy, Twelfth Night is a tale of romance and mistaken identity featuring shipwrecks, duels, disguises and intrigue. This modern productionoffers a remarkable original musical score, innovative design and unique physical approach. Even the most novice theatergoer will be drawn into this daring mystery.
Aquila’s award-winning professional actors promise to thrill and enchant all ages. The performances of Aquila Theatre's cast of Twelfth Night speak volumes about the greatness of the New York-based British theatre company.
Since its establishment in London in 1991, Aquila Theatre has sought to cement the legacy of classic theatrical productions with "bold reinterpretations of classical plays for contemporary audiences... to free the spirit of the original work and recreate the excitement of the live performance."
One might suggest that it is the Aquila Theatre players who have thrust the greatness they have achieved upon the world; with year-round performances in international festivals and across 70 cities in the U.S. and premier educational theatre workshops, Aquila is a stage force to be reckoned with.
