Summary
Subtitled "a dance in three acts." According to the program note, the ballet was "adapted by Lar Lubovitch from a story originated by Geraldi Cintio in the Hecatommithi (Hundred Tales), published in Venice in 1566, and William Shakespeare's play Othello, the Moor of Venice, written around 1602, whose characters and basic plot were adapted from the Cintio tale."
