Spotlight on the Comédie-Française

Twelfth Night | Theatre Broadcast from la Comédie-Française

Author: William Shakespeare | Stage director: Thomas Ostermeier | With the troupe and actors of the Académie de la Comédie-Française

Having survived a shipwreck, Viola arrives in Illyria where, to protect herself, she disguises herself as a man and takes on the name of Cesario. Entering the service of Duke Orsino, she is tasked with transmitting his love to the Countess Olivia. She excels so well in her mission that the Countess is swept away by her ardour.
For his first production at the Comédie-Française, Thomas Ostermeier highlights, through this amorous plot revolving around disguised identities, how bewildering the awakening of desire can be and how confusing the question of gender.
