Shipwrecked Viola is stranded on the coast of Illyria and disguises herself as a man for protection. As Cesario she enters the service of Duke Orsino and delivers his vows of love to Countess Olivia. The Countess, however, immediately falls in love with Viola*Cesario, whose heart, however, beats for Orsino. And when Viola's twin brother Sebastian, who was thought to have disappeared, turns up, the (love) confusion is perfect.
Who am I and why? In WHAT YOU WANT nothing is as it seems and no one is what he or she pretends to be. Shakespeare's comedy of confusion artfully and lustfully breaks down gender attributions and asks questions about (gender) identity, sexuality and the meaning of life.This content has been machine translated.
