A profound tragedy of the power of love and jealousy.

A highly esteemed general serving the state of Venice, Othello the Moor secretly marries Desdemona, the daughter of a senator. As their marriage is revealed, jealousies around their love match and Othello’s rise to prominence are unleashed, marking destructive rifts in a tale that piles secret upon secret, and betrayal upon betrayal (both real and imagined). A society seething with intrigue sets the stage for the machinations of a bitter ensign, Iago, and the ultimate tragedy—when love does not trust, and power is prized above all things. Call 503-445-3700 for dates, times and ticket information.
