Presenting Sponsor:

Love, betrayal and jealousy – all trademarks of great tragic opera – Otello embraces these themes to the fullest. Written decades after going into retirement, Verdi’s interpretation of Shakespeare’s tale takes you on a journey through a passionate romance destroyed by one of opera’s most loathsome villains.
VERDI: Otello
Semi-staged opera in four acts, sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Preview Talk at 7 p.m. with Dr. Jacob Sustaita
Doors open at 6:45 p.m.

All Otello ticket holders will receive free online access to The Otello Project, a three-part online workshop about the opera, so get your tickets early!
