Editorial Reviews


"...a highly original contribution to Verdi research in two respects. First, Hepokoski has discovered important new material. Second, he has developed a provocative theoretical model for analysis of the opera." David Lawton, 19th Century Music

Book Description

An up-to-date guide to Otello includes detailed accounts of the Milanese premiere, Arrigo Boito's derivation of the libretto from Shakespeare's play as well as Verdi's revision of the opera for Venice and Paris.
