One of Shakespeare's most personal and intimate tragedies comes to life on the Center Stage in this period production. Stage Managed by Katie Kohler. Lighting design by Rachel Steed. Featuring a score composed of Arab, Turkic, and period Renaissance Italian music performed by Roberto Riggio.
Othello, a North African mercenary and general of the Venetian army, has passed up his more experienced officer, Iago, for promotion. Consumed with envy and anger, Iago plots his revenge, a revenge which entangles everyone in a dense web of rumours, lies and deception, with his goal being to ascend to his rightful position -- and ultimately destroy Othello. Starkly tragic and deeply moving, this production explores a number of themes including gender relations, passion, and reason.
