The next Metropolitan opera, Verdi’s Otello, is on Oct. 27 at 10 a.m. at the Rialto Theatre.
Verdi’s Shakespearean masterpiece is back at the Met, starring a “chilling and touching” Johan Botha (Huffington Post) in the title role. Renée Fleming as Desdemona is “sublime” and “knows exactly how to spin the gentle lines of the Willow Song and Ave Maria so that they softly fill the hall” (New York Times).
Falk Struckmann is “excellent throughout as Iago … blessed with a luxuriant baritone that commands attention” (Huffington Post). Semyon Bychkov conducts.
Tickets for all of the Rialto Met performances are on sale now. For more information, call the Rialto at 250-338-5502.
