VERDI Otello (complete opera)
Acts I & II
Acts III & IV
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
Jealousy, betrayal, and murder… from the opening tempest scene to the spine-tingling finish, Giuseppe Verdi's thrilling operatic adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy crackles with theatrical electricity. When the insidious Iago cleverly exploits Otello's obsessive jealousy, the Moor's innocent wife Desdemona is blindsided in the explosive dramatic friction. A work of overwhelming power and beauty, this musical portrait of Otello's descent into a tortured heart of darkness is explicit in every chilling detail.
