Illyria is a musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.  The director was inspired by the art of Jack Vetrianno and wanted the set to feel elegant and clean with an emphasis on the beach: big sky, sea and sand.  The three levels of the set represent the class  hierarchy within the play.  Opposing balconies and see-sawing “his and hers” chandeliers speak to the power struggle between the Countess Viola and Duke Orsino.
