Bergen National Opera and Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra present Otello by Giuseppe Verdi. With internationally renowned singers. Staged concert.
In creating the characters for his master play Otello, Shakespeare combined the most devastating but inexorable human traits: arrogance, insecurity, envy and jealousy.
Otello, his Venetian general, is defending the Cypriots against Turkish invasion but becomes obsessed with rumours of his wife ́s infidelity, implied by his ensign, Iago.
For Bergen National Opera's theatrical performances, with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra on stage and the drama swirling around them, we see the return to Bergen of monumental performers: Stuart Skelton - recently our heartwrenching Peter Grimes, with Latonia Moore and Lester Lynch, unforgettable in BNO's 2014 Aida.
Otello is directed and lit by award-winning Peter Mumford and conducted by Edward Gardner.
