Toronto – The Canadian Opera Company closes its 2018/2019 season with Otello, Verdi’s blistering adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy.

But when he looks over his trusted advisor Iago for promotion, he becomes the target of swift retaliation. Posing as a concerned friend, Iago preys on the general’s insecurities, deftly planting seeds of doubt and steadily stoking the flames of blind rage, until Otello arrives at a devastating point of no return. Otello runs for eight performances on April 27, 30, May 3, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 2019.
