NT Live: Othello

United Kingdom | 2013 | 3hrs 56min with intermission | Nicholas Hytner

October 28 - November 4, 2013

The National Theatre presents a major new production of William Shakespeare's celebrated play about the destructive power of jealousy. Adrian Lester takes the title role, with Rory Kinnear as the duplicitous Iago.

Othello, newly married to Desdemona, is appointed leader of a major military operation. Iago, passed over for promotion by Othello in favor of the young Cassio, persuades Othello that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair.

Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC's Hustle) takes the title role. Director Nicholas Hytner (Timon of Athens; One Man, Two Guvnors) reunites with Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre's recent production of Hamlet.

"Adrian Lester's take on Othello will be unmissable." - Susannah Clapp, The Observer
