“The Vienna Philharmonic under Muti plays like demons in the pit . . . With her rich and powerful voice, [Poplavskaya] makes a worthy partner for Antonenko.” — MusicWeb International

In 2008, the Salzburg Festival saw its first new Otello since 1970 with today’s best-known interpreter of Italian opera, Riccardo Muti. British director Stephen Langridge impressed audiences and critics alike with a dramatically expressive production, full of cinematic qualities praised by Die Welt for its “enlightened realism.”

Subtitled in Italian, English, German, French, Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Japanese.
