Description:
One of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies, Othello sets itself apart with its personal scale, fascinating plot and compelling, exotic characters. It shows the two sides of passion with shocking clarity. At first great love overcomes the great differences in social status, age, and race between Othello and Desdemona and their mutual devotion seems invulnerable. But the waves of passion are turned to obsessive jealousy at the hand of Iago, the perfect villain, who has set out to destroy Othello on a personal mission of revenge.
