As a crackling storm rolls into Cyprus, the audiences are introduced to a trio of figures, each based on Shakespeare’s iconic characters: the victorious naval warrior Otello, his faithful wife Desdemona, and his trusted officer Iago. But soon after the rain subsides, the duplicitous Iago preys upon Otello’s insecurity and suspicion by hatching a plot to have Otello question Desdemona’s fidelity, unleashing a passionate tempest of gale force, with powerfully tragic results.

Presented as a festive staged concert event, this thoughtful tale of personal and political jealousy is a rarely performed masterwork.
