Giuseppe Verdi's Otello: In what many believe to be the finest production of Othello in modern times, Plácido Domingo and Kiri Te Kanawa lead a world-class cast under the exquisite musical direction of Sir Georg Solti. An outstanding performance of the first of Verdi's two late Shakespearian operas, universally regarded as sublime masterpieces of grand opera. Placido Domingo and Kiri Te Kanawa lead an outstanding cast in this production of Giuseppe Verdi's operatic adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy Othello.

Georg Solti conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, under the leadership of Bradley Creswick
