Celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Metropolitan Opera's Peabody and Emmy Award-winning series The Met: Live in HD. The broadcast of Verdi's Otello will be presented live on Saturday, October 17 in select cinemas nationwide.

Verdi's masterful Otello matches Shakespeare's play in tragic intensity. Director Bartlett Sher probes the Moor's dramatic downfall with an outstanding cast: tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko plays the doomed Otello; new soprano star Sonya Yoncheva sings Desdemona, Otello's innocent wife and victim; and baritone Željko Lu?i? plays the evil Iago, who masterminds Otello's demise. Dynamic maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts.

Director: Bartlett Sher
Writer: Giuseppe Verdi and Arrigo Boito
Cast: Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Aleksandrs Antonenko, Sonya Yoncheva, Hilba Gerzmava and Zeljko Lucic
