: 'OTHELLO'

( Verdi)
Act II
From Covent Garden
Cast : Iago INGHILIERI
SHAKESPEARE'S tragedy, Othello, is followed k7 very closely in Verdi's Opera. When the Opera opens, the Moor, Othello, General in the Venetian army of the fifteenth century, has already married the high-born Desdemona of Venice. He brings her with him on an expedition to Cyprus. Othello has aroused the jealousy of his confidant, Iago, by promoting the lieutenant Cassio over him. lago plans the fullest revenge.
ACT II
Iago's aim is to make Othello doubt tho faithfulness of Desdemona. The setting of this Act is a hall on the ground floor of the Castle.
First of all, Iago (Baritone) enters the hall with Cassio (Tenor), and in a brief talk advises him to ask Desdemona to plead for his reinstatement. Cassio goes out, and Iago sings his famous ‘ Creed ’—‘ I believe in a cruel God.' As he finishes, Desdemona is seen walking in the garden with Emilia (lago's wife and Dcsdemona's attendant).
OtheUo (Tenor) now enters, just in time to catch sight of Cassio taking leave of Desdemona. In a long scene, lago subtly, but thoroughly, arouses in Othello suspicion of these two.
Desdemona (Soprano) presently enters the Hall, and Othello is much stirred by his love for her ; but his suspicions are roused in earnest when she straightway begins to plead for Cassio.
Emilia (Mezzo-Soprano) has come in with Desdemona, and the dialogue between Othello and his wife becomes a quartet. Desdemona, with the humblest contrition, asks for pardon if she has ever unwillingly offended, and vows her unbroken love.
The two women go away, and Othello continues to brood.
By and by, lago tells of Cassio's talking in his dreams of Desdemona. Othello's frenzy is now complete, and he calls on ' yonder marble heaven ' to witness his oath of vengeance.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
