More relevant now than ever before. The unravelling of Shakespeare’s most iconic outsider.

VERDI: Otello | Conductor Andrea Battistoni | Director Harry Kupfer

Legendary director Harry Kupfer’s acclaimed production of Otello, one of Verdi’s most magnificent works, will return to the Sydney Opera House this July. Distilled from Shakespeare’s masterpiece, Otello is an intense chamber-like piece that explores alterity, deception, and revenge.

Internationally celebrated South Korean artists tenor Yonghoon Lee and soprano Karah Son will undertake the colossal task of embodying two of literature’s most significant characters in their long-awaited debuts as Otello and Desdemona. Fast becoming Australia’s favourite villain, Italian baritone Marco Vratogna returns with a chilling portrayal of Iago alongside Virgilio Marino, Sian Sharp, Richard Anderson and John Longmuir. 

16 July – 29 July 2021
