Synopsis

In Verdi's operatic adaptation of Shakespeare's play, Otello lands victorious on Cyprus, declaring victory over the invading Turks. Iago, Otello's lieutenant, seeks to avenge himself on his general for promoting Cassio ahead of him. Taking advantage of his commandant's known passionate disposition, Iago plots to awaken Otello's jealousy over the friendship between Cassio and Otello's beautiful wife, Desdemona.
