Notes & Reviews:

For Walter Felsenstein, Verdi's "Othello" was one of the most significant works in the history of opera. This was why he chose it to shoot the first color opera film for DEFA in 1969. In his own interpretation, Felsenstein succeeded in creating a work that was not simply a documentation of the stage production, but a work that used cinematic means in order to portray the "unbearable happiness" that "Othello" conveys. Guiseppe Verdi who was enthused by Shakespeare's plays produced with "Othello" an ingenious late work that the fantastic librettist, Arrigo Boito, had specially adapted for him beforehand. Felsenstein produces with "Othello" a film that tells a tragic story interwoven with great music and at the same time documents his own dramaturgical work.
