“I do love nothing in the world so well as you – is not that strange?”
Decked to delight in tuxedoes and gowns, these holiday revelers merry-make with one of the most popular comedies in the English language.
Now returning from their victorious war in the trenches, the officers enter the Dixon armed only with cocktails. The ladies they return to prove more of a challenge than that on the battlefield. World-weary Benedick and gallant Claudio encompass sharp-tongued Beatrice and fair Hero with altogether different romances – the one in denial and the other aflame. High spirits play out in the Dixon masque as youthful passions run riot, lovers are deceived, and eternal bliss is threatened – though not before domestic tranquility wins out with the disassembled help of constable Dogberry and his faithful Watch.
