Director Yuri Butusov and artist Alexander Shishkin created their own version of the famous play. "Othello" is the fifth performance staged by this duet on the stage of "Satyricon": after the productions "Macbeth" (2002), "Richard III" (2004), "King Lear" (2006), "Seagull" (2011).
As the art director of the Satirikon Theater Konstantin Raikin observes, Butusov-director "keeps you in such fine electrical tension all the time." But Butusov himself, and his performances do not allow you to relax for a second. "
In addition, Shakespeare's plays and plays with Shakespeare's motives ("Ibesco's Macbett") showed that Butusov, one of the main characters of today's theatrical life, has very intense relations with the great Bard.
"They are jealous not then, that there is a reason, but only in order to be jealous."
An attempt at jealousy ... Which turns into a torture of love. They do not live by reason - feelings, violent passions.
Othello is an experienced commander. He commanded the Venetian troops in Cyprus, won many battles.
It would seem that people should know. How can you manage them successfully without this?
But the love of young Desdemona overshadowed the mind. She is beautiful, like a day. The wise say - let the beauty be a stranger's wife.
I knew that he was not the only one in her madly in love. Could at least guess ... Foresee danger. But I believed the false orders of Iago, his subordinate.
Iago secretly envied Othello's happiness. Insidiousness and anger often go hand in hand. He arranged so that the handkerchief given to Othello by his wife fell into the hands of another man.
Othello orders Iago to kill the seducer of his wife.
Desdemona sobs, swears in her innocence, but her husband does not hear. Jealousy suffocating him ...
How could she betray him! There is no forgiveness for her ... But he can not live without it.
Pushkin was right: "Othello's tragedy is not that he is jealous, but that he is too trusting."
“ A stunning performance. A brilliant play staged by a brilliant director. For the sake of such performances it is worth going to the theater. Timothy Tribuntsev, Denis Sukhanov, Mariana Spivak - bravo! One of the few performances that I want to come again. Thank you.
“ It is very difficult to understand: it is allegorical and intertwined ... It seems that your "receiver", reflecting reality, is always getting off the wave ... But when I digested and realized, I liked more than immediately after the performance. That the play is not for lovers of classical productions.
“ Strong performance about strong passions. There were several interesting solutions, especially struck by the scene of strangulation, very imaginative and tragic. Very different music. The actors gave their best. In general, the direction of Butusov at the height, as always. Thanks for the strong emotions!
