Bard at the Globe

ImageOthello (Kultur)
Filmed at the historic Globe Theatre in London, this 2007 production of Shakespeare’s tragedy was presented as plays were in the Bard's own era, with much of the audience standing around in front of the stage as at a general-admission rock concert. Although some of the subtleties of this fleet, fast-moving tragic drama are lost, there is fine acting by Eamonn Walker as the jealous Moor, Tim McInninery as the instigator Iago, and Zoë Tapper as the tender-hearted Desdemona.
