Editor’s Choice ‘Gerald Finley gives a masterful account of the part (Iago) … the chorus is exceptionally precise and expressive, the playing is alert and sensitive to drama and text’ Gramophone
‘a spellbinding account’ The Observer (UK)

Verdi had retired from opera following the premiere of Aida in 1871 but was eventually persuaded by his publisher to work with the librettist Arrigo Boito. As with Falstaff, Verdi’s final opera on which they would subsequently collaborate, they turned to Shakespeare for inspiration. Otello, which was premiered in 1887, marked a significant evolutionary development in Italian opera and is widely regarded as one of the great operatic masterpieces.
