Based on Shakespeare's Othello.
The dramatic tragedy of one man’s path to self-destruction is
magnificently set to music in Verdi’s masterpiece, Otello, based on
Shakespeare’s Othello. As a tempestuous storm batters the island
of Cyprus, Otello’s ship battles its way into port. Otello proclaims
victory over the Turks and the storm, and yearns for his reunion with
his beautiful bride, Desdemona. Yet, his triumph is short-lived as he
becomes riddled with self-doubt and jealousy.
Escalated by innuendos and compromising situations fabricated
by the villainous Iago, who is driven by his hatred of Otello, the
tragedy crescendos in a heartbreaking conclusion where even love
is not strong enough to prevail.
