The esteemed General Othello promotes Cassio instead of Iago fueling Iago’s jealousy. Iago, in turn, plans his revenge in incredibly malicious ways, causing suspicion amongst lovers and friends. The results are tragic as suspicion grows, trust is lost and Othello is compelled to take action against his lovely wife whom he believes to be unfaithful.

The music of Vivaldi and the rhythm of the djembe interweave with Shakespeare's elegant language in this tragic masterpiece. As characters dance through the Bard's most intricate and compelling plot, OTHELLO illuminates the fine line between the cerebral and the animal in all of us. This is a visceral telling of Shakespeare’s great tragedy of Envy, Revenge and Damaged Love.
