Otello

Share  

Otello, successful in war and in love, runs a tight ship where loyalty is absolute. His love for his beautiful wife Desdemona is boundless - being both his greatest strength and his most significant vulnerability. His subordinate Iago's evil credo drives him to destroy those around him. Out of spite and loathing, Iago manipulates people and events to plant the seed of jealousy in Otello's mind. Iago feeds Otello's growing doubts about Desdemona's fidelity, placing him on a relentless spiral of all-consuming jealousy. Despite Desdemona's innocence and faithfulness, Otello's rage leads him to commit the ultimate violation of her trust and love. Verdi's penultimate opera is a brilliant testament to his genius and the power of Italian opera at its finest.
