A libretto by Arrigo Boito based on William Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Othello, the Moor of Venice (1604)

This exceptional play by William Shakespeare was interpreted by the Italian musical genius Verdi in the spirit of Romanticism. The plot of the libretto, full of clearly drawn characters, perfectly complements the splendidly composed musical form. The play takes place in the world of politics, showing us the scheming Iago, Othello (a jealous general in the Venetian military), and his wife Desdemona, who is suffocated by Othello for her suspected infidelity.

Performed in Italian with Czech subtitles
