Much Ado About Nothing, believed to have been written in 1598, is one of William Shakespeare’s most popular comedies, and takes its defamed woman plot from Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso.
Beatrice and Benedick are thrown together after being tricked into confessing their true feelings. In the darker second plot, Claudio is also tricked, but into shaming his love, Hero, at the altar. The two relationships are thrown into juxtaposition with sometimes hilarious – and sometimes tragic – consequences.
