Where: Lowell Davies Festival Theatre

Description: The summer Shakespeare festival is starting with one of the world’s greatest tragedies, Othello. Directed by Barry Edelstein, Othello, a timeless classic, speaks of crime and passion, love and betrayal, and human nature in all its glory and doom. Othello is a brilliant general who excels both in the battlefield as well as in the Halls of the State. When he marries Desdemona, he ignites strong envy in his lieutenant Iago who sets in motion a dangerous game of manipulation that eventually destroys Othello. The cast is led by Blair Underwood as Othello, Richard Thomas as Iago and Kristen Connolly as the beautiful Desdemona. Edelstein gives an intense and riveting performance with an equal mix of poetry and clashes of swords.
