WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Shakespeare's gripping tale of jealousy and betrayal provides the inspiration for this immensely theatrical spectacle. Featuring Lar Lubovitch's whirlpool of passionate choreography and Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal's dramatic score, this psychological thriller reaches its inevitable, heartbreaking climax as the brooding commander Othello succumbs to the sinister Iago's machinations and tragedy befalls the palace. Rasta Thomas performs the lead. The versatile performer concluded his engagement in the national tour of Movin' Out in December, and just performed the Dighilev Tribute in Tokyo. Thomas studied at the world-renowned Kirov Academy, where he was considered a prodigy by the former director Oleg Vinogradov. At 13 he made dance history by becoming the youngest recipient of the Jury Prize at the 1994 Paris International Dance Competition.
