Otello by Giuseppe Verdi ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1985 in Italian and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Act III. The great hall of the castle. The lookout has sighted the galley bringing Venetian ambassadors. Unsuspecting Desdemona once again asks Otello's pardon for Cassio, but all she gets for an answer is Otello's request for her to show him the handkerchief he had given her as a talisman. Since she cannot give it to him, outraged, he accuses her of being a courtesan and repulses her. Alone, he mourns his lost happiness. But the arrival of Iago revives him; the henchman wants to complete his web of lies and prepares more deception. He manages to get Otello to listen, hidden, to a conversation he has with Cassio about a courtesan, making Otello think they are talking about Desdemona. Otello pledges to kill his unfaithful wife. But in the meantime the ambassadors have landed and announce that Otello has been recalled to Venice and that his place will be taken by Cassio. In the presence of the dignitaries, Otello, by now completely out of his mind, tells his wife "we will sail tomorrow" and brutally grabs her arms and throws her to the ground. Iago puts in motion the last part of his diabolical plan, urging Roderigo to kill Cassio, while Otello damns Desdemona; all flee in horror. Delirious, the Moor falls to the ground senseless. Iago triumphs over the inert body of his commander
