Details of Otello and the Ticket Luck value
Based on the Shaksespeare's play Othello, the “Otello” is a four act opera by Giuseppe Verdi that premiered at the Teatro alla Scala, Milan, in February 1887. The Metropolitan opera production has some amazing new singers in lead roles that enhance the overall impact of this magnificent production. Under the directorship of Richard Farnes, the amazing performance of the orchestra makes up for a grippingly entertaining opera evening for the theater lovers. According to Mr. Hampson, “Mr. Cura’s Otello is unpredictable yet exciting and conveys Venetian Moor’s wrath and pain in an original manner.”
The heart-rending “Otello” highlights racial tensions that keep the attention of audience engaged from beginning till the end. The human crisis is touched upon through a richly expressive orchestra that provides one-of-a-kind experience to theater goers. The singers have been chosen very carefully to retain the essence of the production. Elena Kelessidi has earned herself a place in the heart of theater goers for her performance. Despite the fact that her voice never floats on top of the orchestra, the intensely touching Willow Song has earned Kelessidi rave reviews from the audience.
Very few operas have the same beginning as that of “Otello.” It starts with a deafening storm that gets eyes of the audience fixed on the production. In Tim Albery’s version of “Otello,” the curtain rises well before the first note is played and the audience has to watch two maids mopping a floor. Playing the role of Iago, David Kempster displays his dramatic and artistic power through his wickedness in the first act. Kempster possesses an inherently strong vocal strength over his role that is hard to find. Moreover, he displays an excellent chemistry and charisma with the mellow-voiced Cassio of Michael Lee Wade to create colorful shades of acoustic joy.
The Ave Maria and Willow Song by the Bulgarian soprano, Stoyanova are among the show-stopping moments of the evening that are not to be missed. The soft voice of soprano colors the lyrics with bright sound that has a deep impact on the audience. Thomas Hampson is at his best when he delivers the Cassio’s dream and pours toxic lies into Otello's ear. If you have watched Renee Fleming deliver a sublime performance of the ill-fated Desdemona, you would know how this dramatic production is similar. If you are a theater enthusiast then book your Otello tickets and watch this wonderful production live.
“Otello” opened for the first time one hundred and twenty five years ago when Verdi himself was uncertain about the success of the production. However, Shakespeare's intensely tragic plot was the center of attention which drew people in attendance to conclude the evening with a deafening round of applause.
Directors and choreographers have paid fine attention to all aspects of the production to capture some of the finer details of Verdi’s writing. The lighting, sound, costumes, cast, sets and staging all work in harmony to provide a larger-than-life opera experience to the audience. The lighting designer, Thomas Hase has added a lot of heart to the production by creating a nice blend of atmospheric shadows which makes up for an enchanting theatrical evening for the audience.
All opera lovers have a reason to celebrate because the “Otello” production is ready to grace the stage at nearly nineteen hundred theaters in sixty four countries around the globe. If you are also one of those opera fans, Otello tickets must be your next buy.
