"What country, friends, is this?"

This bewitching tale of love, madness and disguise is filled with laugh-out-loud moments, heart-breaking pathos and joyful celebration.
Michaela Burger as Feste performs original music on the appellation dulcimer while an award-winning cast brings Shakespeare's comedy to life.
