Opera Company of Philadelphia opens a rich and varied season with the Company Premiere of Verdi’s tour-de-force Otello. Based on Shakespeare’s famed work and widely considered to be Verdi’s greatest opera, Otello tells the story of a slave who overcomes great obstacles to become a noble general, but is then driven to unspeakable jealousy by a scheming, envious officer in his army. Passion, political intrigue and a fatal flaw are at the center of this intense musical drama that stands at the pinnacle of grand opera experiences.
