Notes and Editorial Reviews

The MET’s production of Verdi’s Otello from 1995, with Plácido Domingo in one of his greatest roles opposite the stunning Renée Fleming in her first breakaway Met success.

"Here is a deeply impressive account of Verdi’s final tragedy...Domingo...is every inch the Venetian general. Can anyone have matched his heroic delivery, his frightening mien when deluded or his devastation when the truth is revealed? Every part of his face and body seems involved in this arresting portrayal, more searing even than his other Otellos in sound or on film." - GRAMOPHONE

“An unusually full portrayal.” —Opera News on Renée Fleming’s performance
“[Brian Large has the] ability to bring the viewer
Read more into the center of the stage action without disrupting the flow of the performance.” —New York Times
