The greatest threat to power is love.

A spectacle of rich storytelling and powerful vocal prowess in Verdi's opera, inspired by Shakespeare’s famous play.

The brave, noble general Otello, his beautiful wife, Desdemona, and the villain, Iago, are tested in a tale of greed and jealousy. Otello shows how we can poison our judgment and the collateral damage when our worst impulses triumph over our better selves.

A gripping tale that brought Verdi out of retirement and saw rapturous reviews and over 20 curtain calls at its premiere at La Scala in 1887. Tension and heart-breaking drama share the stage in this grand production of Otello from acclaimed director Harry Kupfer.

This production brings Verdi’s outstanding score to life with impossibly beautiful arias and vivid, explosive tension.
