Introduction 45 minutes before the performance

Following last year's splendid "Midsummer Night's Dream" the Rheinische Landestheater are back
at the 2011 Festival with "Much Ado about Nothing". The comedy, which is not always funny, was first staged by Shakespeare in 1598. There are two couples, Hero and Claudio, Beatrice and Benedikt, both of which could not be more different to the other. The one couple is in love and wants to marry. The other has sworn never and under no circumstances to get involved with the opposite sex, which is expressed here in one of Shakespeares most delightful and cheeky dialogues. Then there is the evil scheming and jealousy of none other than the step brother which almost ruins the happy ending. But, as the truth will always out, the ending is a happy one. At least the expected double wedding takes place - whether or not and for how long the young love will hold, is not generally mentioned in comedies!
