The Cleveland Opera's 25th anniversary season concludes with three performances of one of the most well known tales of war-time intrigue and tragedy: Otello.
While Italian composer Guiseppe Verdi based his Otello on Shakespeare's classic play, Othello, critics regard Verdi's work superior to the bard's.
Performances will be sung in Verdi's native language, Italian, and audience members can follow an English translation that is visible from every seat.
Cleveland Opera's three performances of Otello are part of a worldwide commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Verdi's death.
