Three characters – a lethal drama! Jago's vanity: offended. Otello's emotions: unrestrained. Desdemona's love: helpless. Plus a handkerchief as corpus dilecti. Never did Verdi compose revenge, intrigue and jealousy with more fiery, diabolical music as he provides in this opera written toward the end of his long career. A fascinating murder mystery!
