Othello: RSC, Blu-ray (2015)
Filmed live in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in August 2015
With Hugh Quarshie as Othello and Joanna Vanderham as Desdemona, Iqbal Khan’s ground-breaking production was the first by the RSC to cast a black actor, Lucian Msamati, as Iago.
Othello is the greatest general of his age. A fearsome warrior, loving husband and revered defender of Venice against its enemies. But he is also an outsider whose victories have created enemies of his own, men driven by prejudice and jealousy to destroy him. As they plot in the shadows, Othello realises too late that the greatest danger lies not in the hatred of others, but his own fragile and destructive pride.
The DVD/Blu-ray includes a director’s commentary with Iqbal Khan and Assistant Director Anthony Ekundayo Lennon.
All purchases support the work of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
