Giuseppe Verdi had not written a new opera for almost 13 years when, after his Macbeth, he again turned to a work by William Shakespeare – Othello, a drama of jealousy, which in Verdi’s hands was to become one of the most harrowing dramas of the entire operatic repertoire.

In the course of the opera, the swirling, stormy seas of the opening scene become gradually internalised in the emotions of the characters. Like poison, the envious whisperings of the cynic Iago penetrate the ears of the black Venetian general, Othello, who is at the height of his fame having returned victorious from a battle. In the end, Othello is convinced of his wife Desdemona’s infidelity and kills her – only too late does he realise his error. However, the surprising motto of Graham Vick’s production is «No pity for Othello». The British director shows him as a modern-day desert warrior who has not yet really arrived in his new world. As an unpredictable despot and a black Moslem, he is in search of his own identity.

Only few tenors today can master the horrendously difficult role of Othello; one of them is the Latvian Aleksandrs Antonenko, whom we have again been able to engage for this year’s revival production. Guanqun Yu, who most recently caused a sensation in Zurich as Liù in Puccini’s Turandot, will be singing Desdemona. The Spaniard Juan Jesús Rodríguez, one of the most important Verdi baritones of our time, will introduce himself as Iago. The Italian conductor Daniele Rustoni, who will be at the rostrum of the Philharmonia Zurich, is also an experienced authority on this repertoire.
