Opera on Screen: OTELLO

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Renowned German tenor Jonas Kaufmann gives the performance of a lifetime as Otello in Keith Warner’s new production of Verdi’s thrilling Shakespeare-inspired opera, conducted by Antonio Pappano. This riveting production focuses on the psychological turmoil of Otello’s mental collapse and the clash of light and dark, good and evil. French baritone Ludovic Tézier adds richness as the devastating traitor, Iago. This is an intense and dark realization of the tragic masterpiece that is beautifully and ambitiously staged, opening with a violent storm and featuring stunning duets between Otello and his doomed wife, Desdemona.
