A dramatic new production to celebrate the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth directed by David Alden returning to the London Coliseum following his recent triumphant production of Peter Grimes. Alden is reunited with Grimes collaborators ENO Music Director Edward Gardner and tenor Stuart Skelton, who sings Otello for the first time.
Set on the Cypriot coast, Otello’s tale of betrayed friendship is vividly brought to life through Verdi’s exquisite score which contains some of the composer’s most powerful and tender music.
Shakespeare’s great tragedy of deception, love and jealousy sees the Moorish army general Otello and his new wife Desdemona destroyed by the manipulative Captain Iago.
