Verdi composed Otello after a long period of silence. Fifteen years after Aida (1871) he came back to work on the opera inspired by Shakespeare’s masterpiece, at the invitation of Boito and Ricordi. The season 2013/14 at San Carlo offers a unique occasion to rediscover, at a distance of few months, the two masterpieces, bringing light to the changes of Verdi’s style in that decade. The author acted attuned to the sensitivity of the end of the century, choosing one of the most disturbing psychological dramas to plumb the depths of the man’s soul.
