ADG Europe presents TNT theatre Britain’s production of:
by William Shakespeare
directed by Paul Stebbings
Musical score by Thomas Johnson
Producer Grantly Marshall
Othello is Shakespeare's most perfect play, a masterpiece of dramatic
construction. Othello is a thriller, a love story, a tragedy and an exploration
of race, prejudice, power, war and human folly. Othello was written by
Shakespeare at the height of his powers, its poetry is finer than Hamlet, its
psychology deeper than MacBeth, its love story more compelling than Romeo and Juliet, its heartbreaking tragedy more moving than King Lear. Othello might be
the finest play ever written.
However, like so many of Shakespeare's greatest plays, it is a work much
misunderstood. This is not a play about the helpless victim Desdemona falling
to the cruelty of her husband and treachery of Iago. This is a play about
fascination - fascination in love, fascination and jealousy, fascination and
death. The central characters are caught in a terrifying vortex of their own
making and perhaps their own desire. Othello is the fascinating outsider, the
dark "other“, but also a conqueror, general and leader of men. Iago is
Shakespeare's largest role, a huge complex character consumed by envy and giddy
with the power he wields over his so called "superior" Othello.
Desdemona abandons herself to the Moor in defiance of her father and embarks on
an adventure whose tragic end is perhaps a form of desire.
Paul Stebbings directs Othello, Thomas Johnson composes the score - this
is the same team that brought Hamlet and Oliver Twist successfully to the stage
and toured world wide. The company’s Othello is marked by clear storytelling,
gripping action and visual imagery all complemented by a live score sung and
played by the performers. The historical setting is true to Shakespeare's
original and this powerful performance evokes the style that was used at the
Globe in the Bard's own time.
