For the bantering, bickering Beatrice and Benedick, love is a battlefield. Once bitten and twice shy, the sharp-witted pair are locked in a verbal fencing match with no quarter asked and none given. Is there any way their friends can open their eyes to their true feelings for each other?
For the starry-eyed young couple Claudio and Hero, love is a many-splendoured thing – that's if they can take their eyes off each other long enough to avoid being deceived by bitter schemer Don John.
Welcome to Messina – the war is over, the celebration has begun, love is in the air, and everything else is Much Ado About Nothing.
William Shakespeare's rollicking, romantic comedy is the timeless tale of two pairs of very different sweethearts, the people who want them to be together, and the people who try to rip them apart.
