Illyria Poster
Book, Music and Lyrics by Peter Mills

Adapted by Peter Mills and Cara Reichel from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night

Directed by Scott Wise
 
 
November 11 - November 20, 2011
Since its inception in the 1600s, Shakespeare's comedy, Twelfth Night, has inspired works around the world on stage, screen and in song.  Perhaps none is as original as Peter Mills' Illyria, which is given its name by the mysterious land shared with Twelfth Night, "a land of fools, where clarity's a rarity and madness rules."  A story of love and longing, secrets and antics, Illyria's energetic musical score transcends Shakespeare's play, taking the audience to a place as extraordinary as the mythic land.

December 9 - December 18, 2011

Tossed ashore in a shipwreck, Viola masquerades as a man, becomes a trusted confidante of the Duke and finds herself in the middle of a triangle filled with mistaken identity, secret love and plenty of merriment.  Perhaps Shakespeare's most festive comedy, Twelfth Night features debauchery, trickery and general marauding by a colorful crew of miscreants.  The play's themes are often referenced in more contemporary works, including the films, Shakespeare in Love and She's the Man, as well as the musical, Illyria, also in The Conservatory's 2011 - 2012 season.
