Verdi's triumphant opera comes to the big screen
Help celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Metropolitan Opera’s award-winning series The Met: Live in HD with a stunning performance of Verdi’s “Otello” live at Camike’s East Ridge theatres this Saturday.
Verdi’s masterful “Otello” matches Shakespeare’s play in tragic intensity. Director Bartlett Sher probes the Moor’s dramatic downfall with an outstanding cast.
Tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko plays the doomed Otello; new soprano star Sonya Yoncheva sings Desdemona, Otello’s innocent wife and victim; and baritone Željko Lucic plays the evil Iago, who masterminds Otello’s demise. Dynamic maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts.
“Magnificence worthy of the Met…Yannick Nézet-Séguin led a performance of cracking intensity…Aleksandrs Antonenko sang brilliantly.” — Financial Times
