Great Performances - Classy Production
This is a high quality performance of Othello that I found worked well as an Audiobook. It would probably help to read up a little bit on the overall plot before listening.
Well worth the purchase.

Faithful audio version with great performances
For teaching purposes, alongside the text, yes. It was written to be performed after all.
Shakespeare's other works. Especially the tragedies.
I haven't - I think it is unique as it is a cast performance and not just a single narrator, which is why I bought it for teaching purposes. The performances are convincing and bring the text to life. For me, it is better than having the class read it aloud all the time as the pace is set by the actors and it seems more realistic. This helps the class to understand the action and plot.
Fantastic as a teaching resource alongside the text itself.
