Descriptions Verdi Otello

Based on Shakesphere’s play, Verdi’s opera OTELLO depicts the devastating effects of jealousy, “…the green-eyed monster which doth mock the meat it feeds upon”. Believing Otello has promoted the fast-rising Cassio over himself, Iago plots to destroy both Cassio and Otello. Iago convinces the jealous Otello that his beautiful wife Desdemona is unfaithful, and that Cassio is her lover. Jealousy is followed by tragedy, then retribution, “Has Heaven no more thunderbolts?” The Elijah Moshinsky production of Verdi’s “Otello” was recorded live at the Metropolitan Opera in October, 1995. Plácido Domingo stars as Otello with Renée Fleming as Desdemona, James Morris as Jago, Jane Bunnell as Emilia, and Richard Croft as Cassio. James Levine conducts.
