The Metropolitan Opera: Otello (Encore)

Rated NR 210 min. 2012

Celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Metropolitan Opera's Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD. An encore performance of Verdi's Otello will be shown in select cinemas on Wednesday, October 21.

Verdi's masterful Otello matches Shakespeare's play in tragic intensity. Director Bartlett Sher probes the Moor's dramatic downfall with an outstanding cast: tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko plays the doomed Otello; new soprano star Sonya Yoncheva sings Desdemona, Otello's innocent wife and victim; and baritone Željko Lu?i? plays the evil Iago, who masterminds Otello's demise. Dynamic maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts.
