Great Performances - Classy Production

Any additional comments?

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.

A title is too little to incapsulate such grandeur

In this powerful Shakespearean tragedy, innocence is corrupted and trust is eroded as every relationship is thoughtfully drawn into a tangled web of jealousy by the Machiavellian villain. The voices are different for every character and their superb characterisation bring all the characters to life. The text is faithful to the original one and there are no changes made to it. there are also some sound effects to further immerse you in the story but none too many.
needless to say, I highly recommend this audio book not just for it's impeccable story but also for the great job the voice actors do. Well done!
