Othello, a Moor, falls in love with Desdemona but is broken by jealousy falsely encouraged. Shakespeare's most human play sets delicacy and power, trust and jealousy, love and hate, good and evil in stark and tragic opposition. Powerless in the face of their own self destructive instincts, the characters are caught on a downward spiral towards inevitable tragedy. This dramatic tale of one manâs journey towards destruction is brought vividly to life as Shakespeareâs passionate language combines with original music by composer Ron McAllister, performed by a live string quartet.Author Shakespeare.
