The winner of the Compoamor Prize as best 2015 production, this Otello – a Macerata Opera Festival and Festival Castell de Peralada coproduction – was entrusted to a star of the current direction firmament, Spanish director and set designer Paco Azorin, and conducted by Riccardo Frizza.

Frizza gives back to this Verdi score all of its beauty, its refined orchestral and harmonic writing, at the same time leading with confidence the singers: the solid Otello of the American tenor Stuart Neill, an imposing figure and a voice rich in nuance; the lyrical Desdemona of Jessica Nuccio, debuting in this role; and the excellent Jago of Roberto Frontali, a fine singer and charismatic actor. Azorin’s direction cleverly employs the length and breadth of the great stage of the Arena Sferisterio, also thanks to an inspiring use of lighting and projections.

Giuseppe Verdi’s four-act opera, Otello, based on Shakespeare’s Othello, is set in the late 15th century on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus.

Otello is the 25th title of the 26 operas, which were composed by Verdi. He was 74 years old when he wrote it (1884-1886).

The story adheres closely to the Bard’s play. Otello, an African Moor and general in the Venetian army returns home to a plot of deception created by his subordinate, Iago, which goes awry and leads Otello into a fit of rage resulting in his murder of Desdemoda, his beloved wife. Otello falls on his dagger in despair at what he has done in the final scene, which is an oft-studied subject in literature, opera and psychology.

Before she dies in Act 3, Desdemona sings two well-known arias, “Willow Song” and “Ave Maria.”

In the Met’s 2018/2019 season, modern architectural sets were used to create a contemporary feeling, appropriate for a story, which rings as true today as it did in the 15th century.

World premiere in Teatro alla Scala, Milan, February 5, 1887
