    "Great Performances - Classy Production"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a high quality performance of Othello that I found worked well as an Audiobook. It would probably help to read up a little bit on the overall plot before listening.

    Well worth the purchase.

    Story
    "The stage be littered with bodies"

    Othello... The play you love to hate. How can such a simple plot with such thin artifice of deceit suck you in? This is without doubt a play one needs to hear out loud. The passion of the actors is everything. Without that drama, it falls flat. Desdemona should have strangled Othello with the handkerchief. That aside, I still love the ending with a stage covered with bodies. Ah, Shakespeare. Wonderful acting.

    Story
    "vocals strong - each character easy to track"
    If you could sum up Othello (Dramatized) in three words, what would they be?

    story of deceit


    What did you like best about this story?

    Wife of Iago is my favorite character. Stuck in a role, she fought back fearlessly when she realized how deceitfully her husband had used her to betray her beloved mistress.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Narrators guide the meaning of Shakespearean English by their inflection and emphasis.
