GIUSEPPE VERDI

Otello

Otello, a lyrical drama in four acts staged for the first time in Milan on February 5, 1887, was born from the maturity of Verdi’s immeasurable talent, a very skilful perveyor of scenic effects and a profound reader of the human soul. Indeed, Verdi’s theater puts man at the center of his universe; man, like Otello, who lives his short and precarious existence blinded by passions, torn between two absolute abstractions: the most flawless and virtuous, Desdemona, and the intelligent, cynical and evil incarnate, Jago.

COMPOSER

Giuseppe Verdi

Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) is the opera composer to whom the Italian identity is most linked, because during his long career he has sung of the most intimate values and feelings of a fragmented country that with its music and lyrics has learned to speak Italian.

Among the favorite themes of the Busseto master also the various contradictions inherent in the parent-child relationship, interpreted by masterpieces such as Rigoletto, Il trovatore, La traviata, Simon Boccanegra, Luisa Miller.
