Verdi
Otello

Giovanni Martinelli was the Met’s leading Verdi tenor in the first half of the 20th century, and his moving and tragic Otello was the pinnacle of his great career. Elizabeth Rethberg is a moving Desdemona and Lawrence Tibbett brings his superb diction and flexible baritone to the role of the menacing Iago. Conductor Ettore Panizza leads a taut and sensitive reading of the composer’s monumental score.
