Othello at the Courtyard of Palazzo Ducale

One of Giuseppe Verdi’s most beautiful works, Othello, will be stage in Venice on Wednesday 10, Sunday 14 and Wednesday 17 July at 21.30, by the Fondazione La Fenice in the picturesque setting of the Courtyard of Palazzo Ducale.

In the bicentenary of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi, the doors of Palazzo Ducale in Venice reopen to opera, taking up a tradition of particular historical and artistic importance that dates back to the 1960s: the summer concert season in Palazzo Ducale.

Conducted by Korean Myung-Whun Chung, who will also conduct Verd’s Messa da Requiem in the same days at Palazzo Ducale,

Othello will be staged in a setting conceived by director Francesco Micheli, set designer Edoardo Sanchi and costume designer Silvia Aymonino, created to serve a dual use in the theatre and in Palazzo Ducale, that the Fenice will also stage in April on tour in Japan.

The Orchestra and Chorus of Teatro La Fenice will be joined by the Piccoli Cantori Veneziani and a prestigious international cast.
