Royal Opera: OtelloKeith Warner's 2017 production of Verdi's Otello - "the hottest ticket" of the year (The Independent) when it was first staged - returns to the Royal Opera House this December. The impassioned opera in four acts is based on Shakespeare's play about a Venetian general who is tricked into doubting the fidelity of his wife Desdemona. Olivier Award-winning director Keith Warner's production, a major work in the Royal Opera House repertory, replaces Elijah Moshinsky's traditional, period-costume staging, which had been in service since 1987, with Boris Kudlicka's semi-abstract sets and Kaspar Glarner's naturalistic costumes. American tenor Gregory Kunde, who sung Otello in this production in 2017, returns to one of Italian opera's most challenging roles. Albanian soprano and Royal Opera regular Ermonela Jaho stars as Desdemona and Spanish baritone Carlos Alvarez is Otello's nemesis, Iago. The "arch manipulator" is placed "centre stage" in this "fine" production... and stays there (says The Guardian) while "Antonio Pappano conducts with a missionary zeal".
