Otello by Giuseppe Verdi( visu )
14 editions published between 1978 and 2011 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 330 libraries worldwide
Jon Vickers was one of the most magnetic singing actors of the 20th century and Otello one of his greatest roles. He understood how to combine Shakespeare's rich characterization and Verdi's dramatic music to create an overwhelming figure, one whose death left audiences deeply shaken. Vickers is perfectly partnered by James Levine's conducting and the Met's sensational orchestra and chorus. Renata Scotto is an appealing Desdemona, Cornell MacNeil is a menacing Iago, and Franco Zeffirelli's production is deservedly legendary
