Verdi: Otello DVD (Metropolitan Opera) 2012

Verdi's late masterpiece is presented in Elijah Moshinsky's production for the Metropolitan Opera, New York, with sumptuous sets and period costumes. Semyon Bychkov conducts an all-star cast led by South African Heldentenor Johan Botha in the title role with a voice of 'impressive size and bronze colour' (New York Times). Renée Fleming's Desdemona enshrines one of her signature roles in a definitive performance: 'she knows exactly how to spin the gentle lines of the Willow Song and Ave Maria so that they softly fill the hall (New York Times). A strong supporting cast includes the superb Falk Struckmann as Iago and star tenor Michael Fabiano as Cassio.
