Event description
Experience this joyous outdoor production of Shakespeare’s enduringly popular comedy, Twelfth Night, in the beautiful Botanic Garden.

About this event

“If music be the food of love play on!”

As twilight descends, be entertained by this joyous outdoor production of Shakespeare’s enduringly popular comedy, Twelfth Night.

Performed under the stars in the beautiful natural setting of Adelaide Botanic Garden, this hilarious yet moving comedy of loss and reunion will give you a night to remember through music and an immersive experience of nature.

Produced by newly formed company Shakespeare South Australia and presented as part of the Botanica Lumina program, Twelfth Night stars award-winning performers Michaela Burger, Alys Daroy, Shedrick Yarkpai and a full cast of South Australia’s leading classical actors.

The story

Twelfth Night follows orphaned twins Viola and Sebastian’s separation at sea and the resultant ‘comedy of errors’ of mistaken identity, gender-swapping and merry misrule, while also inviting deeper considerations of environment and self, place and identity, loss and homecoming.

Following a time in which distance and separation have become all too real, Twelfth Night offers a chance for us to share in its catharses, entanglements, reunions and, ultimately, celebrations amongst the “sweet beds of flowers” in South Australia's most iconic garden.

Make a night of it and bring snacks to enjoy as you relax and unwind on the lawns before the performance. Patrons can also pre-order a delicious picnic box of goodies from the Gardens Café and Kiosk.

A bar will be available on the night for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

We invite you to rug up, bring a low-chair or picnic blanket and be transported to a world where all is not quite what it seems.
