This production dating from the mid 1990s is scenically and musically a gem. Previous reviews in
this website call it a drag, but it could nothing farther from being so. The voices of Botha, Fleming, and the diabolically evil Iago played by Falk Struckmann could not have been more compelling. Verdi's music is at the top of his craft. The Met orchestra provided the moving sense of the story. Highly recommend this production, and would love to see it in ENCORE.
Everything from this production's mighty cast to the extraordinary video and audio values deserves
the highest rating for an opera experience, falling short only of having a ticket in the center parterre box in the Met House. This production was perfect, no faults.
