    "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.
