Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"This 1983 'Otello' was captured live at the London Coliseum, and the sometimes far-back voices on the stage... often defeat the purpose of a clearly heard English text. Yet once past a rather staid opening storm, this is an electrifying performance centred around the astonishing Otello of the late Charles Craig... one of the greatest tenors Britain has ever produced... The entire experience give goose bumps in all the right places..." ***** -BBC Music

Penguin Guide
The performance itself is most enjoyable, with dramatic tension building up compellingly. Charles Craig's Otello is most moving, the character's inner pain brought out vividly...Plowright makes a superb Desdemona, singing with rich dramatic weight but also with poise and purity.
