With performances by world famous award winning Shakespearean actors, the Shakespeare Series has recaptured the Elizabethan flavor of Shakespeare's own Globe productions by staging them just as they were seen in the 16th century. Shakespeare's keen understanding of jealousy resulted in perhaps his greatest triumph as a playwright: Othello. Othello, known as the noble Moor, has in his command Iago, a lieutenant who is insanely jealous of Othello's success. After Othello elopes with his lover, Desdemona, Iago plots to exploit Othello, undermine his trust in Desdemona, and deceive Othello into an all-consuming jealousy. Featuring William Marshal, Ron Moody and Jenny Agutter. Grades 9-12. 181 minutes on DVD.
