Othello

The world-renowned Hamburg Ballet returns to the Harris Theater to perform its awe-inspiring interpretation of Shakespeare’s seminal tragedy, Othello. Created by company Artistic Director and Chief Choreographer John Neumeier, this stirring adaptation is charged with “emotional depth and power” and truly “elegant lyricism” (Splash Magazine). Rousing music and dance sequences heighten the drama in the tangled web of deceit and manipulation that is Othello. With accompaniment from the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra and music by Arvo Pärt, Alfred Schnittke and Naná Vasconcelos, the stage is set for misdirection, betrayal and revenge. Watch the destructive course of action unfold in all its meticulously crafted glory.
