What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - YALLA! -

Shake­speare’s tale of a life torn apart by prej­u­dice hits the Dubai stage fol­low­ing a crit­i­cally ac­claimed tour and Lon­don run.

It marks the first time a play will be per­formed on the Dubai Opera stage. First per­formed in 1604, Othello cov­ers themes of love, be­trayal and jeal­ousy.

In Venice, a colo­nial power em­ploys newly mar­ried Othello, a Mus­lim gen­eral, to lead their army against the im­pend­ing Turk­ish in­va­sion. In a so­ci­ety torn apart by dis­crim­i­na­tion and fear, Othello’s life un­rav­els.

Directed by Richard Twyman, Othello is brought to the stage by English Tour­ing Theatre in co-pro­duc­tion with Ox­ford Play­house and Shake­speare at the To­bacco Fac­tory. Jan 31 to Feb 2
