  • Shakespeare's keen understanding of jealousy in love resulted in one of his greatest triumphs, the tragic, violent OTHELLO. Othello, the Moor, is a soldier and nobleman whose marriage to the loyal Desdemona is untroubled by jealousy or conflict--until, that is, his trusted confidante Iago, envious of Othello's happiness, begins to scheme against the couple, igniting a jealous fury in the honorable hero. This 1987 reinterpretation, staged at South Africa's defiantly interracial Market Theatre, was the first time an African actor had played Othello opposite a white Desdemona in that turbulent city. The controversial performance garnered powerful and polarized reactions, but ultimately was considering a ravishing success. John Kani, a Tony-award winner, stars in the title role.
