Act IV. Desdemona's room. She is getting ready to go to bed, aided by Emilia. She is hurt by Otello's attitude toward her, for which she finds no explanation. She has just finished her prayers when Otello enters. He openly accuses her of having been unfaithful to him, even though, unheeded, Desdemona proclaims her innocence. He has already condemned her and proceeds to strangle her. Emilia returns announcing that Roderigo has been killed while trying to assassinate Cassio. Seeing Desdemona dead, she accuses Otello and cries that he has killed an innocent woman. Iago appears, and Emilia reproaches him for his intrigue; his only answer is to flee.

Samson et Dalila by Camille Saint-Saëns( )

27 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Biblical tale of the overwhelming love between a Jewish leader (Samson) and a Philistine beauty (Dalila) that turns sour and destroys them both has inspired numerous composers. But it's easy to see why Saint-Saëns's opera has remained a favorite--not only with audiences but also with great singing actors. Seldom has Dalila been so sultry and seductive, or Samson's fall from strong man to blind prisoner been so wrenching. With enticing Risë Stevens and heroic Mario Del Monaco in the titles roles, and Martial Singher as the High Priest, this stunning performance is a true gem
