Otello - G. Verdi
At the age of 70, Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) created "Otello", one of his most famous works, based on the drama of the same name by William Shakespeare - "Othello, the Moor of Venice". The opera is set at the end of the 15th century in Cyprus, which at that time is ruled by Venice. Otello, lord of the island, and his wife Desdemona fall victim in the course of the plot to the vicious and infamous intrigues of Iago, who acts out of base motives. The premiere at the Teatro alla Scala in 1887 was an indescribable triumph for Verdi, who had not composed an opera for 16 years by then and had actually already retired. After Verdi had already worked successfully with the librettist Arrigo Boito, himself a renowned composer and writer, in a new arrangement for "Simon Boccanegra", the two musicians collaborated again in 1879. Verdi was enthusiastic about Boito’s opera text for "Otello" and began composing it. With "Otello", the composer treads new musical paths and breaks with the old schemes of arias, duets or recitatives. A continuous structure and coherent entities characterise Verdi’s grandiose and psychologically subtly staged mature work.

Anja Harteros
German soprano Anja Harteros was born on July 23, 1972 in Bergneustadt, Westphalia. From an early age, her parents encouraged her to deepen her passion for music. She participates in a choir and takes violin lessons. Very early on, her singing teacher advised her to pursue her vocation for the opera. His career suddenly took off in 1999 with his debut at the Vienna Staatsoper en Mimi in Puccini’s La Bohème, then at the Munich Staatsoper, which in a way became her artistic residence. Anja Harteros has received a great success during her collaborations with Jonas Kaufmann, as in Lohengrin at the Munich Festival in 2009 and in 2013 in Le Trouvère.
