Sent to Cyprus, then (in the 16th century) occupied by the Republic of Venice, to protect it against Ottoman Turkish invasion, Venetian general Othello & his newly wedded wife Desdemona, Roderigo (her rejected suitor who can’t take ‘No” for an answer) & Othello’s lieutenant Cassio all become enmeshed in the jealous Iago’s evil plans that inevitably lead to tragedy.

A 400th-anniversary modern-style production of this classic tragedy of love, honour, jealousy & deception.
