Met Opera LIVE: Verdi's OTELLO - New Production

Broadcast LIVE from New York!

Verdi’s masterful Shakespeare adaptation, composed in an unprecedented late-life artistic surge, is seen in a new production by Bartlett Sher, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducting. Tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko sings the title role of the Moor tormented by jealousy, opposite new soprano star Sonya Yoncheva as his innocent wife and victim, Desdemona. Željko Lučić is the villainous Iago.

Approximate running time: 3 hours 30 min.

“Magnificence worthy of the Met… Yannick Nézet-Séguin led a performance of cracking intensity… Aleksandrs Antonenko sang brilliantly.” —Financial Times

Sonya Yoncheva’s “luscious sound has just enough of an earthy tinge and texture to balance the shimmer of her singing… What other soprano right now can sing the ‘Willow Song’ and ‘Ave Maria’ more beautifully?” —New York Times

Željko Lučić “is superb as Iago, a chilling and malevolent portrait of evil personified… A stark and simple yet often powerful new production of Verdi’s passionate and masterful rendering of one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays.” —Huffington Post
