Otello will be at James K. Polk Theater in Nashville, TN

“A kiss.  A kiss.  Another kiss...” sings Otello as his wife takes her last breath, dead by his own jealous hand.  Shakespeare’s famous play about a great leader destroyed by his own uncontrollable jealousy and desire is matched by one of Verdi’s greatest musical scores to create an unforgettable evening of opera.  Composed near the end of his dynamic career, Verdi’s Otello is the prime example of a masterful composer writing at the peak of his musical and theatrical powers.  Indulge in the intrigue, the tragedy, and the unforgettable passions of one of the greatest operas ever written.  Even the noblest of hearts is not immune to the rage of the blood.

Featuring the Nashville Opera Orchestra

Sung in Italian with projected English translations.
