Othello at Lago di Lugano


Saturday, 19th of December 2015, the famous “Balletto di Roma” stages the play " Othello " at the Theatre Hall of the LAC Lugano.

The “Balletto di Roma”, one of the most important ballet company in Italy, will lead in Lugano to a review in modern dance style (conducted by Fabrizio Monteverde) of Shakespeare's tragedy written around 1603.
The tragedy revolves around four central characters: Othello, a Moorish general of the Venetian army; his beloved wife, Desdemona; his loyal lieutenant, Cassio and his trusted but ultimately unfaithful ensign, Iago. Given its varied and enduring themes of racism, love, jealousy, betrayal, revenge and repentance, this reinterpretation of the one of the most important tragedy of the English author are still current.
