Product Description

With two of the hottest newcomers on today's operatic scene, Aleksandrs Antonenko as Otello and Marina Poplavskaya as Desdemona, the 2008 Salzburg Festival saw its first new Otello since 1970. The British director Stephen Langridge impressed audiences and critics alike with a dramatically expressive production full of cinematic qualities that Die Welt praised for its "elightened realism".

"A timbe like silk, champagne and sandpaper all rolled into one, a great lyric-dramatic soprano!" (Der Tagesspiegel on Marina Poplavskaya)

"Muti shone a light on Otello's violence." (La Repubblica)
