Otello

March 5 - March 13

In March, we will present Verdi’s OTELLO in an ambitious production worthy of our return to the Bankhead stage. The crowning work of a master composer at the peak of his creative powers, OTELLO is arguably Verdi’s greatest operatic achievement. Verdi’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragic story of deceit, jealousy and rage is an opera that ranks among his most demanding, both vocally and dramatically. This production will do justice to Verdi’s tour de force and will be an experience not to be missed. Join us March 5th & 6th, 12th & 13th.
