The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him.

He was the last great composer to give direct voice to basic human emotions, yet he was not always as straightforward as the directness of his work suggests: he was neither the uneducated peasant he claimed to be nor the conservative nationalist he seemed to become in his later years. In this new biography, John Rosselli traces the life and work of a boldly innovative artist. He investigates Verdi's businesslike running of a landed estate as well as a highly successful career, and looks into his complex relationships - still not quite clear - with two women singers: his second wife Giuseppina Strepponi and his probable lover Teresa Stolz. At the same time he considers the music with clarity and insight, dwelling on the most important operas and showing us why they still fill theatres and rouse enthusiasm today."--Jacket+-+K20411670511189ocn000351014book19620.37Walker, FrankThe man VerdiBiography10772ocn003709839book19770.37Weaver, WilliamVerdi : a documentary studyBiography10732ocn005029760book19790.39The Verdi companionExamines Verdi's life and works from different points of view and includes a documented chronology of his life+-+989958848510591ocn055764605book20040.24Steen, MichaelThe lives and times of the great composersBiographyStudies the social, cultural, and political spheres that affected the lives and works of approximately 50 composers+-+5367770465102410ocn016089031book19870.28Osborne, CharlesVerdi : a life in the theatreBiographyCarries Giuseppe Verdi, the musical and theatrical genius whose operas are the most popular of all time, from his humble beginnings through his youthful struggles and mature triumphs, to his acclaimed old age as the national hero of Italian music9922ocn010936465book19840.35Encounters with Verdi+-+85894965359229ocn000401199book19420.50Verdi, GiuseppeVerdi, the man in his lettersRecords and correspondence90611ocn004076010book19780.24Southwell-Sander, PeterVerdi : his life and timesBiographyA view of the nineteenth century Italian composer which captures the feeling of the times, and outlines Verdi's own personal life through the use of letters and documents+-+85075466253248725ocn001058938book19740.28Wechsberg, JosephVerdiBiography8055ocn707969114book20110.24Wills, GarryVerdi's Shakespeare : men of the theaterHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcExplores the writing and staging of Verdi's three triumphant Shakespearian operas: Macbeth, Othello, and Falstaff.
