Vittorioso sulla flotta musulmana, il moro Otello, che è al servizio della Repubblica di Venezia, rientra da trionfatore a Cipro, dove lo attende la bellissima moglie Desdemona.

Vittorioso sulla flotta musulmana, il moro Otello, che è al servizio della Repubblica di Venezia, rientra da trionfatore a Cipro, dove lo attende la bellissima moglie Desdemona. Egli trova però anche il suo luogotenente Cassio ed il fido, ma invidioso Jago, che aspira a prenderne il posto. Subito Jago provoca un alterco fra Cassio e un altro ufficiale, Roderigo; Otello, sdegnato, priva il suo Luogotenente del grado e del comando. Poi, continuando nelle sue trame, Jago instilla nel cuore del Moro una folle gelosia, facendo in modo che questi sorprenda Cassio a colloquio con la moglie (sollecitata dal giovane ad intervenire in di lui favore). Infine, aiutato dalla moglie Emilia, ancella di Desdemona, Jago sottrae alla dama un fazzoletto (dono di Otello) che poi abbandona in casa di Cassio. Geloso e furioso, Otello, durante un ricevimento in onore di una Ambasceria veneziana, offende Desdemona: ma richiamato in Patria, intende lasciare comunque il comando a Cassio. Mentre quest'ultimo scampa alla morte per mano di Roderigo (istigato dal perfido Jago), Otello entra come impazzito nella propria camera e soffoca Desdemona. Indi, baciando per l'ultima volta quel viso che pure adora, si uccide pugnalandosi al cuore.

With a only a few exceptions, the film follows the same plot as the opera. Jago plots and brings about Otello's downfall by convincing him that his wife Desdemona is engaged in an affair with the young lieutenant Cassio, provoking Otello to murder her in a blind rage.

One of the most acclaimed musicians of his era, Toscanini was a conductor of the "old school" - aristocratic, perfectionistic and something of an autocrat on the podium. After a brief flurry of interest in Fascism in the 1910s, he rapidly became disillusioned with the movement and indeed became a personal rival of Mussolini, repeatedly antagonising him through acts of artistic defiance such as refusals to open concerts with the Fascist anthem Giovinezza.
Eventually he fled Italy for the United States, becoming the first conductor of the newly-formed NBC Symphony Orchestra, with whom he pioneered radio broadcasts and recordings that made him a household name in America until his retirement at the age of 87. He gave the premiere performances of several major works, including Barber's Adagio for Strings and the American premiere of Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony.

In honor of the Tito Gobbi centenary (in 2013), the Associazione Musicale Tito Gobbi has unearthed and released this Otello, performed in the courtyard of the Doge's Palace in Venice, in August 1966. While technical challenges involved in broadcasting a production back in the '60s, from a venue not designed for theater, caused occasional problems involving camera work and sound, the resulting black-and-white video is well worth having, particularly for Gobbi's brilliant Iago. Although an earlier Gobbi Iago is available from VAI, filmed in Japan in 1959 opposite Mario Del Monaco's titanic Moor, this later document finds the extraordinary baritone no less nimble physically and vocally. In fact, the vastness of the performing area and the evocative atmosphere of the Palazzo Ducale seem to draw from Gobbi a sort of ownership of the environment that is perfect for Iago, as he darts about controlling events like a sardonic puppeteer. And, as one recalls from performances at the Met six months after this one, Gobbi was able to imbue the character with a youthful, amicable persona that made Iago's vile deeds all the more chilling. This video also confirms the recollection that this role, even in late career, was one the great singing actor found vocally congenial. There is a lightness of delivery that makes Iago's Act I drinking song and Act III duet with Cassio particularly stunning. Textual and tonal colors are employed in a manner that feels inevitable rather than applied, and Iago's "Credo" might as well have been written for Gobbi, so perfectly does it suit his gifts. All in all, this is a dazzling performance.
