Giuseppe Verdi

Otello

Introduction at 5.20 PM

Otello is the very cause of his own madness. He must fend off envy, enmity and threats – were he sane, this would be easy. He has made his way to the top of the state with reason: surely not by being overly squeamish with his competitors. However, he is stricken, and what has rocked his foundations is the loneliness of the jealous and the betrayed. He thinks himself betrayed by his wife, yet in truth he is betrayed about this betrayal. That he of all people has fallen prey to intrigue might have something to do with the fact that he is a member of a minority, a social lightning-rod for others. That, however, is not the point. Boito and Verdi tell the tale of a man driven to a state of hopelessness. He is no longer able to act consistently and consequently. He has become the cause of his own madness.
