Shakespeare's Twelfth Night is adapted to modern times in this German production. The cast find themselves in a marshy region along the North Sea known as Slesvick. Duke Orsino ("If music be the food of love, play on...") is a dejected land-baron, Olivia a vacationing young widow, and so on. Despite updating the life situations of the characters, this classic tale of mistaken identity and true love is basically unchanged.
