Notes and Editorial Reviews

Modern dance master Lar Lubovitch has created a vibrant new interpretation of Shakespeare's classic tale of passion and jealousy, ambition and betrayal, with his dance in three acts.

Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as "a major new chapter in American ballet as well as a spectacular addition to the international repertory," the San Francisco Ballet's production features Desmond Richardson as Othello, Yuan Yuan Tan as Desdemona and Parrish Maynard as the Read more treacherous Iago. 16x9 Anamorphic Widescreen; 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound.
