From Grange Park Opera's website:
"Verdi’s opera, based on Shakespeare’s play about the tragic Moorish general manipulated into a frenzy of paranoia by his sidekick, Iago, was an immediate success – Verdi had 20 curtain calls at the opening night.
The opera has remained in the world’s repertoire ever since. The three leading roles – Otello, Desdemona and Iago – are among the most challenging Verdi ever created and Grange Park Opera is delighted that Simon Keenlyside, one of the most celebrated baritones today, will sing the role of Iago, with Gwyn Hughes Jones as Otello and Elizabeth Llewellyn as Desdemona.
It will be a night to remember."
