The National Theatre presents a major production of William Shakespeare's celebrated play about the destructive power of jealousy. Olivier Award-winning actor Adrian Lester (Henry V at the National Theatre, BBC's "Hustle") takes the title role. Playing opposite him as the duplicitous Iago is fellow Olivier Award-winner Rory Kinnear (The Last of the Haussmans, Skyfall), who is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner (Timon of Athens, One Man, Two Guvnors) following their acclaimed collaboration on the National Theatre's recent production of Hamlet. Othello, newly married to Desdemona (Olivia Vinall)—who is half his age—is appointed leader of a major military operation. Iago, passed over for promotion by Othello in favour of the young Cassio (Jonathan Bailey), persuades Othello that Cassio and Desdemona are having an affair. Official Web Site
