The Greek National Opera and the Baden-Baden Easter Festival present this major co-production of Verdi's Otello directed, and with sets and lighting by the visual master and lighting genius that is Robert Wilson. This avant-garde director, who forever changed the way that opera is staged, here foregrounds the music, offering up an Otello that unfolds within a minimalistic scenic world, with highly visual sets, impressive lighting, stylised movement, singular costumes, and intense make-up. The production, so warmly received by audiences at the Festspiel Baden-Baden in April 2019, is now coming to Athens with a world-class cast headed by the most sought-after Otello of our times, Aleksandrs Anto?enko, who made his debut in the role, conducted by Riccardo Muti, at the Salzburg Festival to huge success before going on to perform it at the Metropolitan Opera and elsewhere, including London, Paris, Vienna, and Barcelona. Rounding out the lead roles are the internationally acclaimed GNO soloists Cellia Costea, Tassis Christoyannis, and Dimitris Paksoglou.

Verdi's Otello closely follows the narrative of the Shakespeare play, rendering the story through music of explosive power and exemplary expressive economy: a single musical phrase can encapsulate the heroism and fierce might of Otello, the seething hatred of Iago, the innocence and guileless trust of Desdemona. A few bars of music can capture the terrifying force of a storm raging both at sea and inside the soul of our lead character, a man set to be swept from the seat of his glory, overcome by his jealous instincts. The action takes place on Cyprus, where the island's Moorish General, the war hero Otello, is manipulated by the scheming Iago into strangling his innocent wife, Desdemona, in the belief she is being unfaithful. When Iago's machinations are exposed, Otello takes his own life.
