Otello - 27/10/2012 (12A)
Johan Botha and Renee Fleming reprise their acclaimed performances in Verdi's Shakespearian masterpiece. Semyon Bychkov, who conducted 'Otello' to great acclaim in the Met Opera's 2007-2008 season, returns for the 'Live in HD' debut of Verdi's towering opera based on Shakespeare's play, 'Othello'. Also revisiting the opera are Johan Botha as the Moor of Venice and star soprano Renee Fleming, in one of her greatest roles, as Otello's innocent wife Desdemona. Verdi's penultimate opera, and considered by many to be his greatest and most mature work, 'Otello' is a brilliant interpretation of Shakespeare's great play. It provides a rich musical language for the story of Venetian general Otello, who is tricked by envious Iago (Falk Struckmann) into believing that his new bride Desdemona is having an affair with Cassio (Michael Fabiano). Plagued by doubts, jealously and increasing mistrust of blameless Desdemona, the Moor descends into madness - with terrible consequences.
