Notes & Reviews:
The greatest general of his time, Othello is a fearsome warrior, a revered defender of Venice, and a loving husband. He is also an outsider, and his trail of victories has created enemies of prejudiced and jealous men. Othello eventually realizes that his greatest danger is in fact his own pride. In this production, Lucian Msamati makes theatrical history as the first black actor to ever play Iago at the Royal Shakespeare Company. Bonus features included in this release are a Director's commentary and a cast gallery. "Hugh Quarshie is an excellent Othello... " (The Guardian) "Compelling and freshly focused, anti-heroic and unlyrical production, packed with twists and surprises." (The Stage)Notes & Reviews:
