A tale of uncontrollable jealousy, deception and murder The republic of Venice employs Othello, a self-made man and a Moor, to defend its overseas territories against the Turks. But for all his military success, Othello remains an outsider in the city, an object of racism, envy and mistrust.
As the Turkish threat gathers and Venetian forces are despatched to Cyprus, Iago, a junior officer secretly enraged by his lack of promotion, exploits Othello's ambiguous position and ingenuous nature, driving him into a passionate and uncontrollable jealousy.

Music for Othello is by Stephen Warbeck who wrote the scores for the films Shakespeare in Love and Billy Elliot.Performed for the first time at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, with its racing concentrated plot and intense dramatic detail, Othello is one of Shakespeare's most exciting, atmospheric and heartbreaking plays.This is a tale of uncontrollable jealousy, deception and murder driven by one of theatre's greatest villains.
