The Royal Opera House welcomes “Otello” in 2012, giving London audiences a new chance to witness what is a classic opera from Verdi in the version directed by Elijah Moshinsky in the late 1980s. With themes from marriage to trust and infidelity, the opera has been a popular one ever since the excitement surrounding the original premiere mounted in the late 1880s. As such it is likely to attract plenty of attention as it lands in the capital once again, this time with giving modern generations with opera tickets the chance to experience a true classic.
The plot, of course, focuses on Otello, a general who now holds the title of Governor of Cyprus, and his marriage to Dedemona, a beautiful Venetian girl. They have a chance to be good together but the trust Otello holds in his wife is compromised when Iago lays hints that she might have been with someone else.
It premiered back in 1887 and as Verdi’s new piece after almost 2 decades of silence in the Opera world, it drummed up a lot of attention, as it will likely do so once again in 2012 as it appears alongside other classic at the Royal Opera House like the ballet “The Prince of the Pagonas” and the opera “Salome”.
“Otello” appears at the venue from Thursday 12th July 2012 to Tuesday 24th July 2012.
