Presented by the Pop-up Globe Queen’s Company.
“O beware, my Lord, of jealousy. / It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock / The meat it feeds on.”
Witness Shakespeare’s ultimate psychological thriller in Pop-up Globe’s production of Othello. Take a journey into the diseased mind of the noble Moor as he’s consumed by ‘the green-eyed monster’; jealousy. The twists and turns in this powerful and dark production will have you on the edge of your seat.
The Pop-up Globe Queen’s Company presents Shakespeare’s tragedy, Othello, at Pop-up Globe Melbourne.
Othello is one of Shakespeare’s greatest psychological thrillers. In a theatre of war, a great general is brought down by the power of his own love and the prejudice of others.
Othello forces us to confront a timeless fear: does the Devil move among us? Racism, jealousy and envy conspire in Shakespeare’s dark tragedy, in this full production inspired by the Jacobean period, performed by a specially-formed international ensemble in spectacular bespoke costumes.
The Pop-up Globe Queen’s Company is Pop-up Globe’s resident mixed company of male and female actors and musicians, working with world experts to bring you the shock of the old: the effect of Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space for which they were written.
“There is certainly no holding back as British director Ben Naylor presents a vigorously physical, blood-soaked interpretation of a play which has acts of appalling cruelty mingling with exquisite poetry.” – New Zealand Herald, 2017
“WOW – “Othello” has to be seen to be believed, what a powerful, moving, discomfiting performance – terrifying, sad and entertaining all at once. Thank you for an incredible night out.” – Mel, audience member
