|Students’ Scheme for Otello|
Shakespeare wrote his tragedy Othello in 1603 and it ranks among the Bard’s finest works in the genre. Although the play is more than five centuries old, its themes of love and hatred, trust and betrayal, life and death are ones that man is still struggling to cope with today; ones that elude understanding let alone explanation; ones that are the cause of suffering, pain and poverty the world over in our supposedly progressive twenty-first century.
Whether you are studying Shakespeare’s Othello at sixth-form or at undergraduate level at University; whether you are an aspiring designer or studying architecture; whether you are immersed in your theatre studies; whether you are an engineer student studying the mechanics of how things work; whether you are a technology buff very interested in computers and how these help opera become the modern and innovative art form it has become – now is the chance to enhance your interests, whatever they be! You will be pleasantly surprised to see many youngsters like yourselves taking part, either in the chorus, or in the set-building, or designing, etc!
