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.
