Verdi, a great admirer of Shakespeare, had no qualms about setting Othello, the great playwright's quintessential work of jealousy and betrayal, to music. Verdi's transformation of this tale of manipulation that leads Othello, mad with jealousy, to murder his wife Desdemona, before he realises that he himself is the victim of deceit, is one of the greatest works in the history of opera, as presented at the Liceu. In addition, Amélie Niermeyer's production sets feminicide and misogyny at the heart of the drama, seen through a contemporary lens.
