“The peak of the mountain of tenor roles in Italian opera is the title character in Verdi’s Otello… So, naturally, people have been asking for years if and when the star tenor Jonas Kaufmann would attempt it. And, once he did it, would he own it? That long-awaited moment finally arrived on Wednesday: In front of a sold-out Royal Opera House here, Mr. Kaufmann made his debut in the part, and he calmly, confidently sang it for the ages.” - Zachary Woolfe, New York Times

Otello
is Verdi’s final tragedy. He was lured out of retirement by the composer and librettist Arrigo Boito, who tempted him with a proposal that was very close to Verdi’s heart: Shakespeare’s Othello. Boito adapted the libretto from Shakespeare’s play, with much intervention from Verdi. As the latest utterance from the master of Italian opera, the 1887 premiere was an instant success – but, more than that, Otello has been an important part of the international opera repertory ever since. Keith Warner (Wozzeck, Der Ring des Nibelungen) directs a new production of this masterpiece, The Royal Opera’s first in 30 years.

Director: Keith Warner

“Pappano rewards Kaufmann, and the rest of us, with a searing account of arguably Verdi’s greatest opera; by turns tender, passionate and, of course, violent.” – David Mellor, The Daily Mail (UK)| full review
