Othello 1982 - 1983

Tour Information

Othello, a Moorish military leader in the service of Venice, has secretly married Desdemona, the highborn daughter of a Venetian nobleman.

However, it is the duplicitous Iago who poses a threat to the newlywed’s happiness.

Iago has been passed over for the office of lieutenant, and is intent on destroying Othello and Desdemona…

Then must you speak / Of one that loved not wisely, but too well
