Desmond Richardson in Lar Lubovitch's Othello

Lar Lubovitch's Othello

2003 NR

Desmond Richardson plays Othello in the San Francisco Ballet's critically acclaimed version of Shakespeare's classic tragedy, choreographed by the legendary Lar Lubovitch, with a musical score by Oscar-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal. Underhanded Iago (Parrish Maynard) convinces Othello that his true love, Desdemona (Yuan Yuan Tan), has been unfaithful -- and Othello's blind jealously leads to devastating results.
