O Mistress Mine: Music for Shakespeare's Twelfth Night 
April 14, 2014  7PM  St. Paul on the Plains, 1510 Ave X, Lubbock TX



Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s most musically-rich plays. Characters break into song, and their dialogue frequently references many popular tunes of the day.  The Bard’s audience would have known these songs well, and “got the jokes” – and we will, too, if we get to hear some of the music before we actually see the play, which is being presented by the TTU Theater Department May 1 through May 4 at the Maedgen Theater, with live music provided by members of the Texas Tech Early Music Ensemble.  If you want to “get” all the jokes, you can hear the music beforehand at a concert called “O Mistress Mine—Music for Twelfth Night,” presented by the Texas Tech Early Music Ensemble Monday evening April 14 at 7PM at St. Paul’s on the Plains Church (1510 Ave. X) .  The concert is a fundraiser for the Twelfth Night production, and donations will be gratefully accepted at the event. Come hear the music that Shakespeare heard!
