In het Royal Opera House
Antonio Pappano conducts a new production of Verdi’s thrilling Shakespeare-inspired opera Otello at Royal Opera House in London.
Iago sows the seeds of jealousy in Otello’s mind, fabricating a story of an affair between Iago’s rival Cassio and Otello’s young wife Desdemona. Iago’s trickery cements Otello’s suspicion into mistaken certainty.
Otello murders the innocent Desdemona. Confessions by Iago’s accomplices – including his unknowing wife Emilia – lead to the revelation of Iago’s plot. Appalled by the wrong he has committed, Otello kills himself.
Directed by Keith Warner, starring star tenors Jonas Kaufmann and Gregory Kunde in the title role.
