The Greek National Opera and the Baden-Baden Easter Festival present this major co-production of Verdi’s Otello directed, and with sets and lighting by the visual master and lighting genius that is Robert Wilson. This avant-garde director, who forever changed the way that opera is staged, here foregrounds the music, offering up an Otello that unfolds within a minimalistic scenic world, with highly visual sets, impressive lighting, stylised movement, singular costumes, and intense make-up.

Conductor: Stathis Soulis, Director, sets, lighting: Robert Wilson, Co-Director: Nicola Panzer, Associate set designer: Serge von Arx, Costumes: Jacques Reynaud, Associate lighting designer: Marcello Lumaca, Hair & Make-up artist: Manuela Halligan, Video: Tomek Jeziorski, Chorus master: Agathangelos Georgakatos, Children’s chorus mistress: Konstantina Pitsiakou
