The Met's OTELLO Screens in Movie Theaters This Saturday
Renée Fleming sings as the innocent Desdemona in Verdi's towering tragedy Otello. South African tenor Johan Botha sings the title role, one of the most demanding parts in the operatic repertory, with German baritone Falk Struckmann as the treacherous villain Iago.
Rising American tenor Michael Fabiano makes his Live in HD debut as Cassio. Maestro Semyon Bychkov conducts Verdi's dramatic masterpiece, which is based on Shakespeare's play. Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky, one of the Met's leading Verdi stars, hosts the transmission and conducts backstage interviews with the stars. (Running time: approximately 181 minutes, including one intermission.)
An encore of the October 27 performance will be shown in select theaters in the U.S. on Wednesday, November 14 at 6:30 p.m. local time.
