Written at the height of Shakespeare’s creativity, Othello explores the tragedy of a love destroyed by jealousy. Provoked by the lies of the perfidious Iago, who mounts a campaign to poison Othello against his wife Desdemona, Othello begins to mistrust his loyal bride. As his suspicions rise, Othello surrenders to self-doubt, eventually destroying his once-happy marriage. In this much-loved Shakespeare classic, the Bard weaves a bloody tapestry of deception and betrayal where love and honor hang in the balance. Darko Tresnjak directs.
