Comment: Re: SHK 17.1000 Russian 'Twelfth Night'
Nora Kreimer tells of a production of Twelfth Night in Russian, by
Russian men and boys, staged in Buenos Aires. She claims that 'The
script had the original text in this white screen-ribbon that is also
used for opera.' I'm not sure what this means. She also says that it
was marvellous. It sounds to me like a characteristic triumph of the
multi-lingual, shape-shifting, boundary-blurring Bard who these days
dominates too many of the world's stages. But Shakespeare it ain't.
