Powers collide in Shakespeare's poetic tragedy Othello. Join Minnesota's Guthrie Theater for this riveting story of passion, manipulation and betrayal. Othello reveals a complex world in which social order, racial politics, and personal ambitions push the treacherous Iago to destroy Othello and his wife Desdemona. America's flagship regional theater delivers a focused examination of this deeply psychological drama and illuminates the dynamic, sensual text and themes of Shakespeare's masterpiece Othello. Don't miss this rare opportunity to The Guthrie Theater in their first national tour in 20 years.

 

Guthrie Theater will be in residence at the Fine Arts Center as part of the Shakespeare in American Communities Project. During their one-week residency, they will be involved in a variety of performances and educational activities. The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to sponsor Shakespeare in American Communities, a national theater touring initiative, in partnership with Arts Midwest. The Guthrie Theater's 2004 National Tour of Othello is sponsored by Marshall Field's Project Imagine and Target.

 

Sponsored by WFCR 88.5FM. Outreach activities by the Guthrie Theater made possible in collaboration with the Five College Theater Department and the UMASS Department of Theater.
