Othello: The Opera and Play Enmeshed
Saturday, September 14, 8 p.m.
Divaria Productions presents Othello: The Opera and Play Enmeshed, an exploration of the timeless classic through theater, opera and dance. With the guidance of stage directors Anton Armendariz and Andrew Bell, the project features selections from Giuseppe Verdi’s opera in Italian, elements of William Shakespeare’s text and professional singers and dancers, which, when combined, transmit the essence of the story through harmonious mediums. The classic story of Othello concerns themes of jealousy, misplaced trust and exclusion, all of which are extraordinarily relevant today. Tickets are $25–$50.
