Publisher's Summary

BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. The tradition of excellence continues in this fast and funny production of Twelfth Night when all the world is turned on its head and all authority usurped, when by civil misrule girls become boys and women lust after women. Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.

If music be the food of love play on

People always say that it's hard to understand Shakespeare, but this recording proves them wrong. It is so funny and entertaining and beautifully performed. I love listening this ancient English. Anne Marie Duff is my personal favourite. Her Viola is very clever and sensitive, I would love to see her on stage!
