Twelfth Night is ...

Incidental Music: Overture

the overture sets the tone with an overall comic feel which soon turns to stromy music, underscoring the storm at sea which brings the protagonists to Illyria (in the production, the strom was pantomimed prior to Shekspeares' opening scene)

Incidental Music: Enre'acte

The Enre'acte provdes a soothing respite between acts (the original production was in two main Parts with an intermission)

Sir Toby, Sir Andrew, Fabian and Maria are plotting to make an idiot out of Malvolio.

The cue for this transition to their entrance in Act II Scene 5 is Orsino's line at the end of Act II, Scene 4: "My love can give no place, bide no denay":

3.Bide no denay
00:00 / 00:10

Sir Toby is a bit of a drunken fool so his music has a bit of a limp to it - and a raucous growl as well
