Shakespeare’s masterpiece concerning the turbulence of war and the arts of peace tells the romantic story of Henry’s campaign to recapture the English possessions in France. But the ambitions of this charismatic king are challenged by a host of vivid characters caught up in the real horrors of war. Henry V which, in 1599, opened the original Globe with the words ‘O for a muse of fire’, celebrates the power of language to bring to life courts, pubs, ships and battlefields within the ‘wooden O’ – and beyond.

Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote.

This performance, recorded at The Globe in 2013, revisits their award-winning Twelfth Night of 2002.  An all-male Original Practices production explores the clothing, music, dance and settings possible in the Globe of around 1601.

Twelfth Night –  Other Credits: written by: William Shakespeare

The superb performances include Rylance’s Olivia and Fry’s hilarious Malvolio.
