  • "Giovanni Martinelli was the Met's leading Verdi tenor in the first half of the 20th century, and his moving and tragic Otello was the pinnacle of his great career. Elizabeth Rethberg is a moving Desdemona and Lawrence Tibbett brings his superb diction and flexible baritone to the role of the menacing Iago. Conductor Ettore Panizza leads a taut and sensitive reading of the composer's monumental score."
  • "This is the only broadcast of the great Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballé as Desdemona, a role that suited her pure, limpid, lyric voice to a T--and which she never recorded. James McCracken's impassioned Otello is as securely sung as it is moving, and the great singing actor Tito Gobbi is an Iago for the ages. Zubin Mehta conducts the monumental score. where Verdi meets Shakespeare as an equal dramatist."
  • "The cast and synopsis of Act I are announced at the beginning (RWA 2026, A4). The 1st intermission features the MET Opera Guild discussion of the broadcasting of opera. Milton Cross presents a synopsis of Act II (RWA 2026, B2). The 2nd intermission features Opera Question Forum and a synopsis of Act III (RWA 2027, A3). The 3rd intermission features the program Our American Way of Living, with Mrs. Thomas Perron speaking on nutrition problems in America. It closes with a synopsis of Act IV (RWA 2027, B2)."
  • "Plácido Domingo, the leading Otello of his generation, gives an intensely emotional performance as the great warrior destroyed by jealousy in this broadcast of Verdi's towering Shakespeare adaptation. Aprile Millo is his wife, Desdemona, the innocent woman at the center of the web of deceit spun by the villainous Iago--sung by James Morris, who celebrates 25 years at the Met with this performance. Music Director James Levine presides over the company's musical forces."
  • "This memorable performance marks the first time James Levine conducted Otello for a Met broadcast. He brings thrilling power and lyric sweep to Verdi's late masterpiece, leading orchestra, chorus, and soloists in a towering performance. It's not hard to understand why the great singing actor Jon Vickers owned the role of Otello for a generation: even in his first Met broadcast of the role, his gripping and ultimately devastating portrayal is equal parts heroic warrior, tender lover, mighty ruler, and betrayed friend. Teresa Zylis-Gara is a radiant Desdemona and Luis Quilico is the sly, black-hearted Iago."
  • "The story: Act I. The action unfolds on Cyprus, under Venetian rule in the 16th century. The scene is outside the castle, residence of Otello, governor of the island, facing the port. It is night. A furious storm churns the sea, and a crowd of Venetian citizens and soldiers helplessly watch while the ship of the Moor Otello desperately tries to make it into port. Only Iago, one of Otello's men, does not participate in the general apprehension for the safety of his leader: he hates Otello, because Otello has promoted Cassio captain instead of him; he meditates revenge. The crowd is jubilant as Otello finally lands safely and announces that the Turkish fleet has been defeated. When the Moor enters the castle, the fireworks start and all drink to his victory. In the midst of the rejoicing, Iago starts to weave the scheme that will lead to his commander's downfall: he treacherously insinuates to Roderigo, who had revealed to Iago his love for Otello's wife, Desdemona, that Captain Cassio also feels the same affection for the woman. Then Iago gets Cassio drunk, and incites a fight between the two men, but the dangerous duel that starts between them is stopped by Montano. However, the peacemaker is wounded by Cassio. Iago sounds the alarm, swelling the episode out of proportion until the crowd is in tumult. Called back by the shouts and noise, Otello, falsely informed by Iago, punishes Cassio and demotes him. This is a first victory for Iago, who exults."
  • "Otello. Mario Del Monaco,tenor Renata Tebaldi,soprano Aldo Protti, Fernando Corena,bass Piero De Palma, Angelo Mercuriali, Pier Luigi Latinucci, Dario Caselli, Luisa Ribacchi. Orchestra and Chorus of Accademia Di Santa Cecilia of Rome, Alberto Erede, conductor."
  • ""Otello"James McCracken, tenor Gwyneth Jones, soprano Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, baritone Ambrosian Opera Chorus John McCarthy, chorus master Children's Chorus Jean Povey, trainer New PhilharmoniaOrchestra Sir John Barbirolli, conductor Libretto included."
  • "Act III. The great hall of the castle. The lookout has sighted the galley bringing Venetian ambassadors. Unsuspecting Desdemona once again asks Otello's pardon for Cassio, but all she gets for an answer is Otello's request for her to show him the handkerchief he had given her as a talisman. Since she cannot give it to him, outraged, he accuses her of being a courtesan and repulses her. Alone, he mourns his lost happiness. But the arrival of Iago revives him; the henchman wants to complete his web of lies and prepares more deception. He manages to get Otello to listen, hidden, to a conversation he has with Cassio about a courtesan, making Otello think they are talking about Desdemona. Otello pledges to kill his unfaithful wife. But in the meantime the ambassadors have landed and announce that Otello has been recalled to Venice and that his place will be taken by Cassio. In the presence of the dignitaries, Otello, by now completely out of his mind, tells his wife "we will sail tomorrow" and brutally grabs her arms and throws her to the ground. Iago puts in motion the last part of his diabolical plan, urging Roderigo to kill Cassio, while Otello damns Desdemona; all flee in horror. Delirious, the Moor falls to the ground senseless. Iago triumphs over the inert body of his commander."
  • "In order to revenge himself against Othello, Iago uses deceit to awaken in Othello a suspicion that his wife, Desdemona, has been unfaithful to him. After Othello kills Desdemona he learns of Iago's treachery, and plunges a dagger into his own heart."
  • "There is nothing more exciting in the theater than witnessing the birth of a genuine star, and this is a prime example: Kiri Te Kanawa's Met debut, made on only a few hours' notice. She stepped on stage a virtual unknown, but after her ravishingly sung, deeply poignant portrayal of Desdemona, she was instantly beloved by opera lovers around the world. With the incandescent Jon Vickers as Otello, Thomas Stewart as Iago, and James Levine's thrilling conducting, this is an Otello for the ages."
  • "VIENNA STATE OPERA CHORUS. VIENNA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA. KARAJAN, Herbert von (conductor)."
  • "Act II. A ground-floor hall in the castle; a door leads to the garden. Iago continues his plan: he suggests to Cassio to ask Desdemona to intercede in his favour with Otello. In a monologue, Iago describes his cynical view of life, then he plants the seeds of jealousy in the Moor's soul, leading him to suspect that there is a secret love between Cassio and Desdemona. Thus, when the woman, arriving from the garden, tries to intercede for the degraded captain, Otello's jealousy is enflamed, and he brusquely refuses the request. Once again, Iago insinuates having heard some compromising words murmured by Cassio in his sleep, and, having obtained with the help of his wife Emilia a handkerchief that Otello had given to his young wife, affirms having seen it in Cassio's hands. For Otello, this is proof enough. He vows terrible revenge."
  • "Otello: Dramma lirico in quattro atti. Libretto: Arrigo Boito."
  • "For many opera fans tenor Mario Del Monaco simply was Otello. His brilliant, ringing voice was enormous, but he could also scale it down to a haunting whisper. This is a performance of gripping dramatic power that will never be forgotten. Fortunately this broadcast also includes the renowned Victoria del los Angeles as a melting Desdemona, and the great Verdi baritone Leonard Warren as Iago."
  • "Arturo Toscanini played in the orchestra for the premiere of Otello and memorized all of Verdi's instructions and tempi; hence these precious recordings provide students and scholars with priceless information as the music dates from the time when Toscanini knew Verdi and knew precisely what he wanted."
  • "Act IV. Desdemona's room. She is getting ready to go to bed, aided by Emilia. She is hurt by Otello's attitude toward her, for which she finds no explanation. She has just finished her prayers when Otello enters. He openly accuses her of having been unfaithful to him, even though, unheeded, Desdemona proclaims her innocence. He has already condemned her and proceeds to strangle her. Emilia returns announcing that Roderigo has been killed while trying to assassinate Cassio. Seeing Desdemona dead, she accuses Otello and cries that he has killed an innocent woman. Iago appears, and Emilia reproaches him for his intrigue; his only answer is to flee. Otello, dismayed and suddenly aware of the trap into which he has fallen gives a last kiss to his beloved wife and stabs himself."
  • "Shakespeare and Verdi, two colossal creators at the height of their dramatic genius, unite to create an overwhelming masterpiece. Clarion-voiced tenor Johan Botha is Otello, the acclaimed warrior, hero, and ruler, who is insidiously destroyed by his own inner weakness and insecurity. Carlo Guelfi is his malicious, conniving aid, Iago, and Renée Fleming sings his beautiful wife Desdemona. This is tragedy at its most searing."
