Description: On Monday, July 17th, select Showcase Cinemas, including Woburn and Worcester North, will show Giuseppe Verdis passionate retelling of Shakespeares great tragedy, Otello, presented by the Royal Opera House. This encore performance, directed by Olivier Award-winning director Keith Warner and conducted by Antonio Pappano, stars the world-famous tenor, Jonas Kaufmann, in his role debut as Otello. Otello is the final Royal Opera House performance of the season showing at Showcase Cinemas.

The story:
Iago sows the seeds of jealousy in Otellos mind, fabricating a story of an affair between Iagos rival Cassio and Otellos young wife Desdemona. Iagos trickery cements Otellos suspicion into mistaken certainty. Otello murders the innocent Desdemona. Confessions by Iagos accomplices  including his unknowing wife Emilia  lead to the revelation of Iagos plot. Appalled by the wrong he has committed, Otello kills himself.

Showcase Cinemas continues to support and exhibit the arts through Event Cinema screenings.
