Otello is a self-made man, a former slave risen to the rank of general and now in love with a devoted wife, Desdemona. But his trusted advisor Iago begins to manipulate Otello in a relentless quest to destroy the general. Consumed by paranoia and suspicion, Otello’s earnest love for Desdemona takes a violent turn with catastrophic consequences.
Verdi’s masterful treatment of Shakespeare’s tragedy is brought to life by a dream cast of COC favourites in David Alden’s highly acclaimed production.
On stage at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, 145 Queen St. W., Toronto.
Sung in Italian with English SURTITLE.
