What happens when fear and jealousy spiral out of control?  Iago manipulates Otello and fuels his underlying mistrust and paranoia by spinning a web of deceit and lies.  Otello begins to doubt the faithfulness of his beloved wife, Desdemona, and begins his descent into madness.  He must decide who and what to believe.  The opera is full of some of the most beautiful and dramatically poignant music ever written by Giuseppe Verdi.
