Seeing Desdemona dead, she accuses Otello and cries that he has killed an innocent woman. Iago appears, and Emilia reproaches him for his intrigue; his only answer is to flee.

Though his worldwide celebrity was sealed by his first collaboration in The Three Tenors with Plcido Domingo and the late Luciano Pavarotti in 1990, Carreras had been one of operas finest tenors for almost twenty years, his sweet and lyrical voice commanding a wide range of roles from the ardent young romantic hero of Werther to the dangerous Don Jos of Carmen.
