Abstract: The production of Twelfth Night was Habimah´s first production of Shakespeare and the first comedy in its repertoire. It was directed by Michael Chekhov (1891-1955). The reminiscences, letters and diary entries of Chekhov and the Habimah actors trace the ccourse of the preparatory wirk for the production. Chekhov set himself the task of giving Shakespeare´s comedy a contemporary relevance. The artistic results could only by the creative cooperation of the actor-director with the ensemble. Chekhov employed his methods of movement, improvisation, imagination and concentration, among others, that had been tested at the Second Moscow Art Theatre.
