Description
1 videocassette (VHS, PAL) (86 min.) : sd., col.; 1/2 in.
Summary
Modern dance work based on William Shakespeare's tragedy Othello, and set to music by Benjamin Britten. This tape contains three almost complete performances, followed by excerpts. Because of the need to change film reels, there is a gap in each performance, occurring at a different point in the action. The first and third performances are shot from central vantage points; the second from the stage left side of the auditorium. Most of the excerpts are close shots. The choreography is sometimes difficult to discern because of the low-level stage lighting.
Donor/Sponsor
