Katia Ricciarelli in Otello

Otello

1986 PG

Lending his stunning voice to Verdi's opera and Shakespeare's tragedy, Placido Domingo plays the Moor Otello, whose conniving ensign, Iago (Justino Diaz), plants the seed that drives Otello to murderous jealousy against his wife, Desdemona (Katia Ricciarelli). Director Franco Zeffirelli (Romeo & Juliet, Tea with Mussolini) shot the emotionally wrenching tale on location in Italy and Crete. Opulent costumes add to the visual splendor.
