One of the major works of Italian opera, Verdi's great final tragedy is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's play. This new production is directed by Keith Warner and is the Company's first new staging of the opera in 30 years.
It stars world-renowned tenor Jonas Kaufmann in the title role, Maria Agresta, Marco Vratogna, and Frédéric Antoun in the roles of Desdemona, Iago, and Cassio, conducted by Music Director Antonio Pappano. Director Keith Warner’s production explores Otello’s gradual mental collapse, as Iago’s machinations cause him to lose all confidence in himself and his wife’s love, and his identity fragments.
