Othello is passionate and powerful contemporary dance theatre that tells the dramatic story of the Venetian Moor, his beloved Desdemona, and the conniving Iago, who will stop at nothing to usurp Othello’s power. Witness ambition and betrayal, set to a commanding score by Academy Award® winner Elliot Goldenthal. Featuring breathtaking costumes, elaborate multi-media projections and unparalleled dancing, this will be your last chance to see the Joffrey’s riveting and critically acclaimed production of Othello.
