ROH’s soundfile

This soundfile represents the Court in As You Like It.

The surface is civilised, which is where ROH has chosen the music, the woman singing, but underneath this civilised, cultured facade the court is a frightening, violent and repressive place.

Celia Character Profile

Tags: ,

Celia is very affectionate; she places her love for Rosalind above everything else. She is very devoted to Rosalind and would do anything for her. They have grown up together and have spent most of their time with each other which means they have quite a strong bond. She is less ebullient than Rosalind, quieter and more detached, but she is quite capable of teasing her. She can be very witty but is quite shy and does things in her own way. She sometimes undermines Rosalind as when she playfully suggests that Orlando is not in love. Celia can seem very shy and a sort of push over but she should not be under estimated as she can be very witty and undermining.

Celia and Rosalind

Duke Frederick

Posted: May 14, 2010 by rosalindayli in Globe, HBL, Pupil

Duke Frederick is an evil, power hungry man. He has thrown his brother, Duke Senior out and banishes him to the Forest of Arden.

He is evil because he is now banishing his brother’s daughter Rosalind to the Forest of Arden because he says she’s a traitor.

Duke Frederick shows his power by being demanding for example by saying “Mistress, dispatch you with your safest haste and get you from our court.”

He is feared rather than loved. He says “You are a fool. You niece, provide yourself. If you outstay the time, upon mine honour, and in the greatness of my word, you die.”

 He is scary because he is willing to kill Rosalind if she doesn’t leave the court within 10 days. He says “You, cousin within these ten days if that thou be’st found so near our public court as twenty miles thou diest for it.
