In this magnificently complex study of extremes, Shakespeare pairs his most loving and trusting leading man with his most conniving and ruthless villain in a dangerous dance of deceit and revenge. The radiant language of love transforms into delirious ravings as his characters descend into jealousy, fear, and rage. Both expansive and claustrophobic, Othello is Shakespeare at the height of his creative power— a ravishing and unforgettable classic.
