“Not to affect many proposed matches/Of her own clime, complexion, and degree,/Whereto we see in all things nature tends,” says Iago to Othello in persuading him that Desdemona, having acted impulsively, in persuading him that Desdemona, having acted impulsively, must now be regretting her marriage to a Moor, an outsider. And so, Shakespeare’s tragedy of prejudice, mistrust, and betrayal resonates strongly in our present moment. In this production, with a cast of seven actors, Rosenberg investigates and examines the corrosive effect of social forces on the most intimate of human and family relationships.

This exhibition is part of Carnegie Hall’s citywide festival La Serenissima: Music and Arts from the Venetian Republic.
