at Metropolitan Opera
The Met season opens with Verdi’s masterful Otello, inspired by Shakespeare’s play and matching it 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 Lucic plays the evil Iago, who masterminds Otello’s demise.
Dynamic maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts.
Sung in Italian with Met Titles in English, German, Italian and Spanish
