OTHELLO / DESDEMONA

OTHELLO
            DESDEMONA
Live June 2022
Source Theatre, DC | Dupont Underground, DC | Baltimore Theatre Project, MD


A groundbreaking and epic theater experience in two evenings! On the first evening, audiences experience an audacious reimagining of Verdi and Shakespeare’s, with new musical “sea-interludes” composed and performed by Matthew Evan Taylor and in an all new English poetic treatment by Andrew Albin, featuring the searing images of British visual artist Keith Piper.

Audiences return the second evening for Toni Morrison’s shattering and meditative play told with the music of the immortal Nina Simone, featuring world renowned crossover soprano Claron McFadden. The work comes to life within a sculpture installation by renowned visual artist Maya Freelon. Remarkable and multifaceted artist Maribeth Diggle takes the role of Desdemona in both evenings, which will be performed at Source Theatre and a DC site-specific location, as well as at the Baltimore Theatre Project, and in a series of adventure performances in The Dupont Underground.
