Othello

June 3 – July 3, 2010

Location: John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts – Washington, DC

Role: Cassio

After thrilling audiences with its spectacular Antony and Cleopatra, Synetic once again infuses one of Shakespeare’s most poignant tragedies with its “art of silence,” exploring a tale of love destroyed by jealousy. When the general Othello triumphantly returns home to the promise of peace and marriage, little can he know that his most trusted advisor is also one of the most fiendish and manipulative villains imaginable. Scandal is fueled, families and friendships are destroyed, as a “trifle light as air” – a handkerchief – undoes them all.

Othello stars company members Roger Payano as Othello and Salma Shaw as Desdemona, Irina Tsikurishvili, Philip Fletcher, Alex Mills as Iago, and features Irina Koval as Emilia and Scott Brown as Cassio, as well as Vato Tsikurishvili, Natalie Berk, Armand Sindoni, Peter Pereyra, Greg Anderson, Sarah Taurchini, Brynn Tucker, and Matthew Ward.
Recommended for ages 16 and up due to suggestive content.
