Publisher's Summary

This great tragedy confronts the mystery at the heart of evil and contains some of Shakespeare's most magnificent dramatic verse.
Othello, a Moorish general in the service of Venice, has married Desdemona, beautiful daughter of a Venetian senator. But Iago, Othello's malignant ensign, is determined to destroy their happiness. Cunningly bending Othello to his own purposes, Iago persuades the Moor that Desdemona is unfaithful to him. Tormented in a hell of jealousy, Othello moves inexorably toward the destruction of his innocent wife and himself.
Othello is played by Don Warrington, David Threlfall is Iago, Anne-Marie Duff is Desdemona, and Jasper Britton plays Cassio.

Heartbreaking

One of the most heartbreaking things I've ever listened to. In a uniformly excellent cast, David Threlfall is terrifying as Iago, and David Warrington exquisite in his agony. Anne Marie Duff is a charming Desdemona, increasingly baffled by Othello's abrupt change in attitude toward her. I put off listening to the last scene for a few days to build up my resilience: it's almost unbearable. One of the best of the Arkangel productions.

Outstanding Performance.

Very well done. Good sound effects and voices. I found it very easy to comprehend what was happening from scene to scene.
