The Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival opens its 20th Anniversary Season with the powerful tragedy Othello enjoying its first-ever staging at the Festival and Kitsilano.ca is giving away a pair of tickets for the performance on Friday, June 5th.
One of Shakespeare’s best-known tragedies, Othello reveals how jealousy, prejudice, deceit and betrayal can drive innocent love to tragedy. Angry that the noble moor Othello has promoted inexperienced Cassio instead of him, Iago sets out to exact revenge. In a dazzling display of villainy, Iago convinces Othello that his new bride Desdemona has been unfaithful with Cassio, driving Othello to rage, madness and murder.
Othello runs Tuesdays to Sundays in the 520-seat open-ended Mainstage tent in Vanier Park from May 28 to September 25th. Tickets are $34 for evenings and $18 to $28.50 for previews/matinees.
