Giuseppe Verdi: Otello 
La Fenice, Venice 
La Fenice Orchestra and Chorus 
Myung-Whun Chung, conductor

CAST: Gregory Kunde (Otello); Leah Crocetto (Desdemona); Lucio Gallo (Iago); Elisabetta Martorana (Emilia); Francesco Marsiglia (Cassio); Antonello Ceron (Roderigo); Mattia Denti (Lodovico); Matteo Ferrara (Montano)

Otello, Iago and Desdemona, three of literature's most complex and compelling characters, come to life in what many consider Verdi's most moving opera. Written when the composer was in his early 70s, Otello takes one of Shakespeare's finest tragedies and, if anything, makes it even more powerful and heartbreaking.
