Othello | [William Shakespeare]

Othello

"Speak of one that loved not wisely but too well." This moving tragedy tells the story of Othello, a Moorish general, whose servant Iago deceives him into believing his wife, Desdemona, is unfaithful. In a jealous rage, he murders her - and then must face his own self-loathing when he realizes what he has done. In rendering the dramatic descent of a proud warrior from greatness to jealous insanity, Shakespeare produced some of the most eloquent passages ever written in the English language. This full-cast performance does justice to Shakespeare's words, featuring Frank Silvera as Othello, Alan Bates as Cassio, Cyril Cusack as Iago, and Anna Massey as Desdemona.

    "High Drama and a wonderfully Low Iago"

    Cyril Cusack makes a memorable Iago and for me was the centre of the audio play, but the great final scenes between Othello and Desdemona as performed are very moving.

    This play really moves along, it has a purity to the match of pace and dialogue and this version doesn't miss out on that quality.
