莎士比亞名喜劇 Twelfth Night, or What You Will(中譯：第十二夜)。第十二夜在莎氏當時原指新年假期中的最後一夜，這十二天裡人們盡情享樂，在最後一夜中歡樂氣氛更是達到高潮。第十二夜這樣一個喜劇即便經常在如此歡慶的場合搬演。莎氏此劇以雙胞兄妹遭遇船難之後，分別來到伊里萊亞，其中妹妹薇爾拉化身為男人服侍於公爵奧西諾並愛上他，而此地公爵奧西諾追求女伯爵奧里薇亞不成，反鬧出奧里薇亞愛上女扮男裝的奧西諾信使薇爾拉；哥哥瑟巴斯顯則被船長救起後無意中來到伊里萊亞，因其與薇爾拉極為相似的面貌而衍生出種種誤會。副線情節則是喜劇意味更為濃厚的故事，女伯爵奧里薇亞家中管家馬伏里奧因過於傲慢及自戀而被女侍瑪莉亞聯合家中食客托比爵士、安德魯爵士與小丑費斯迪共同捉弄，馬伏里奧誤以為主人奧里薇亞對他有意思而做出種種可笑舉行及隨便的談話，因而慘遭幽禁，幽禁時還被小丑費斯迪假扮神父托巴斯大大嘲弄一番。最後則是愛人們各有歸屬，馬伏里奧無罪釋放，是一齣皆大歡樂的浪漫喜劇。
William Shakespeare's comedy of disguised and deceptive love is entertainingly brought to listeners on these high-quality audiocassettes. Using the complete text from the New Cambridge Shakespeare text, the production presents a full cast of accomplished Shakespearean actors and actresses who skillfully convey the emotion and meaning, confusion and humor of this popular play. When twins Sebastian and Viola are shipwrecked and separated off the coast of Illyria, each believes the other is dead. Viola disguises herself as a boy, becomes a page of Duke Orsinio, and falls in love with him. The Duke is hopelessly in love with Olivia, but she is in the process of mourning her brother's death and becomes infatuated with Viola as she/he delivers messages for the Duke. When Sebastian shows up, Olivia confuses him with the Duke's page (Olivia) and marries the astonished young man. All is cleared up eventually when Viola and Sebatian meet and recognize each other. In the midst of all of this romantic confusion, servants and family members provide comic relief with their pompous, pretentious, and sometimes inebriated behavior. Early English music and excellent sound effects are sparingly included, yet add greatly to this performance. Reading along with the text is optional as the production moves at an easy-to-follow pace, and characterizations are clear and captivating. A booklet with background and a synopsis of the play, photos and descriptions of each cast member, and starting points for each scene on the proper tape side is a useful addition. For its entertainment value or as a supplement to the curriculum, this excellent audioplay is highly recommended.
