By William Shakespeare
Directed by Nicholas Hytner
This screening was recorded from an earlier live performance.

The National Theatre presents a major new production of William Shakespeare’s celebrated play about the destructive power of jealousy.

Othello, newly married to Desdemona, who is half his age, is appointed leader of a major military operation. Iago, passed over for promotion by Othello in favor of the young Cassio, persuades Othello that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair.

Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC’s Hustle) performs the title role. Playing opposite him as the duplicitous Iago is fellow Olivier Award winner Rory Kinnear (The Last of the Haussmans, James Bond: Skyfall), who is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner (Timon of Athens, One Man, Two Guvnors) following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre’s recent production of Hamlet.
