Verdi remained silent for a good 15 years, and – with the exception of revisions to his older operas – did not publish a single work of musical theatre. But then, in 1887, after an extended period of work, he presented his "Otello". Based on Shakespeare’s menacing drama, he created not only one of the most exciting works of opera, but also a profoundly modern one. One that masterfully plays with the emotional states of innocence and love, jealousy, envy and anger.
