Quotes & Highlights
“As Othello, Fabrice Calmels is glorying in the part of a lifetime, his swift abilities and magnificent presence part of a performance that’s electric, heartbreaking and unforgettable.” —_Chicago Tribune _(See the full review.)
“In his enthralling, boldly original Othello, choreographer Lar Lubovitch proves himself a true master of such words-into-motion ‘translation,’ weaving this classic tale of love and all-devouring jealousy in the most fluid and audacious dance terms. Lubovitch also banishes the need for the mime and stilted gestures that make even the most otherwise modern story ballets feel oh-so-19th century.” And, “Elliot Goldenthal’s lushly burnished score (with echoes of Prokofiev and Shostakovich, plus subtle riffs of jazz) is vividly played by the Chicago Sinfonietta, led by Scott Speck.” —Chicago Sun-Times (Read the full review.)
Choreography by Lar Lubovitch
Music by Elliot Goldenthal
The Joffrey premiere of Lar Lubovitch’s full length ballet! Chicago-born Lubovitch brings his rhapsodic interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic tale of passion, jealousy, ambition, and betrayal. _Othello _is beautifully told through Lubovitch’s expressive language of contemporary choreography. The ballet is heightened through the powerful score by Academy Award winner, Elliot Goldenthal and has incredible scenery projected on stage with a set made from shattered glass. _Othello _received a fifteen minute standing ovation when performed in Paris. You won’t want to miss it!
