Giuseppe Verdi composed “Otello” at the advanced age, opera’s music, however, is marked with youthful verdure and novelty of style. Audience welcomed the work with tremendous ovation during 1887 premiere. Opera by Verdi and tragedy by Shakespeare are mentioned in the same breath — these masterpieces are united by combination of tragic power and delicate lyrism. Do not miss opera’s semi-stage version premiere on the stage of NOVAT!
