Opera Philadelphia - Otello

Until October 2, 2022

Presented by Opera Philadelphia for the first time, Gioachino Rossini's Otello comes to the Academy of Music stage this fall in this stylish, 1920s set production from Spanish director Emilio Sagi. Rarely performed in favor of Verdi's later version of the Shakespearean tale, Rossini's Otello is a masterpiece of bel canto and is full of beauty and poignancy, highlighted by Sagi's Gilded Age reimagining.
