Othello is the greatest general of his age. A fearsome warrior, loving husband and revered defender of Venice against its enemies. But he is also an outsider whose victories have created enemies of his own, men driven by prejudice and jealousy to destroy him. As they plot in the shadows, Othello realises too late that the greatest danger lies not in the hatred of others, but his own fragile and destructive pride.

Lucian Msamati makes theatrical history in being the first black actor ever to play Iago at the RSC.

Extra features: includes The Story of Othello, director's commentary and cast gallery
