A master manipulator turns an African Venetian army general against his wife in Shakespeare's powerful tragedy that delivers a harrowing tale of jealousy, prejudice and the sinister price of manly honour.
A soldier of great standing and a newly married man, Othello seems to be in an enviable position. And yet, when his supposed friend sows doubts in his mind about his wife's fidelity, he is gradually consumed by suspicion.
In this tragedy of strange, ornate beauty and remarkable psychological power, innocence is corrupted, and goodness and happiness are wantonly destroyed.
