After surviving a shipwreck, Viola arrives in Illyria, where she disguises himself as a man and takes the name Cesario to protect himself. She then enters the service of Duke Orsino who, charmed by her, asks her to transfer his love to Countess Olivia.

But Cesario/Viola, secretly falls in love with the Duke, excels so well in her mission that the Countess is madly in love with her. Thomas Ostermeiers first production for Comédie-Française revolves around disguised identities, desire and how confusing the issue of gender is.
